It looks like you have feeder roots other than the taproot which will be invaluable. Conversely, from the pictures it looks like those feeder roots are exposed thus will die back. My advice (which is worth the hypothetical paper I'm not writing on) is to cover those feeder roots and be very careful with your watering as your soil looks very organic and broadleaf oaks are very sensitive to overly moist conditions.
