Message control: forward or delete messages | iOS 11 Guide

Individual messages can also be forwarded or deleted, whether they are standard text messages or multimedia messages.

Open a message conversation, tap and hold a message bubble, then tap More.

Tap the arrow icon to forward just that text, or select more messages by tapping the clear circles followed by the arrow icon. Then add a recipient and send the message. To remove messages instead, tap the trash icon on the left-hand side.
