This is a custom made suit, and appears to have a little fabric inside the back. Would it be dangerous to ask the tailor to lengthen it by a half inch? Is that possible and would it screw with the balance?
Just leave it alone. The outcome of such an attempt may be far worse.

The length is borderline. Save the tweaks for the next time.

It's contemporary, thus it is shorter than trads are used to. Overall it looks fine, I'd definitely NOT mess with it. As they say, "the enemy of good is better".

Tastes vary, fashions vary, but the job of tailoring remains the same: to make a suit that looks good on the particular person who will wear it.

I’d say the OP’s source whoever it was did a good job.
