Where an actor/actress plays two roles, the normal convention is to separate the names with a slash. What about if the two roles have the same surname and are listed in the credits as "Katy and Jessica Devlin"? Should it be entered into IMDB like that or should it be changed to "Katy Devlin / Jessica Devlin"? I ask because the names are currently listed as "Katy / Jessica Devlin" which does not make it clear that they share a common surname.

Use Katy Devlin/Jessica Devlin. Use the slash not a comma. The system converts it on this page example below.
