You can't. When calling interp2(..., x, y); with the interpolation points x and y are scalar/vectors with different sizes, the inputs x and y are first expanded on grid as following:

[X Y] = meshgrid(x(:),y(:)) % x varying 2nd dimension and x first
z = interp2(..., X, Y);

Therefore
1) if x is scalar, the output is vertical regardless y;
2) if y is scalar, the output is horizontal regardless x.

This behavior is documented.

If you want to force the result to be horizontal or vertical vectors, you must expand x, y in the same size:

fuint([1 1 1],[2,3,4])
fuint([2;3;4],[1;1;1])
