I don't know exact lengths, but the outside two are the same and the middle one should be shorter. I would stand the three next to each other and see if one is shorter than the others. If not then they sent you the wrong valve.

No, by looking at the assembled head, they would all be the same height. But with the center valve inserted at a different angle than the outers, you couldn't tell. You'll have to pull them out. The center valve should be shorter.
