Advice on how to make my 9-month-old more comfortable rear facing?

My son is 9 months and very long. He’s out of his bucket seat and i to a rear facing one but it seems like he doesn’t have enough leg room. Legs are always crossed and awkward looking. I might be weird but I’m concerned about circulation and his comfort. Is there such thing as an extender to give him more leg room?
