It is normal for them to be a little longer then the bottom - as long as they are able to eat and drink like normal it's fine. If not, file down the tip of it until it is normal length. (I've never had to do this, so I don't know how easy it is.)

before you go filing down their bills please post a pic, I'm thinking this is normal but a pic would help determine. and Muscovy do have sharp claws because they were tree dwellers at one time. Be very careful when trimming because they bleed like the dickens if the quick is cut into.
