It seems a touch short, but not egregiously so. It's hard to tell in the photo because you don't get to see the full length of the outfit. Photos also tend to distort things.

The rule of thumb is that the jacket should roughly bisect you halfway from the collar to the floor when you're wearing shoes (the heel will add something to this effect). Sport coats can be a little shorter than suit jackets in this regard, but they still stay within the ballpark. When viewing yourself in the mirror, see if the jacket roughly bisects you halfway. This will be a better determinant than these sorts of online photos

The Armoury has a good video about this subject that you may find useful.

Any shorter and I’d agree; too short.
As is, it’s fine.

And that’s not a blazer.
