When tads first hatch from eggs, they are very small. They will get big quick, don't worry about it.
ok next question when should i move them to their separate cups and when do i feed them? (like now or will the yoke still provide nutrients?)

I'd put them in seperate cups now. I wait like 2-3 days before offering the first tad bite. They get huge so fast dont worry!

Just remember to keep the water level pretty low (about 1/2 inch), as the tadpoles are small and need to get to the surface to breath. Also, don't put in too much food, as it will foul the water and kill the tadpole (if you are using tadpole bites, one bite is fine for a week or two with such small tadpoles). I use human grade Spirulina to feed my tads and this works well for tinctorius tadpoles.

Good luck with them! Richard.
