Late to the discussion but ...I am not sure how a tech can LOOK at a photo of keys... and conclude the heights are low, unless the photo shows ridiculously dramatically low heights.
Keyheights can vary from horn to horn, maker to maker, vintage to modern.

What I see in the photo are heights very slightly low but not dramatically so. noted by others...IF:

~It doesn't sound stuffy or dead
~It tunes well (IOW you aren't pushing the MP unusually far onto the neck to bring the pitch up to a tuner)
~IT feel responsive enough under the fingers...IOW the action isn't alien to you....

...all is fine. If one or more of the above is 'off', yeah raise 'em a bit.
