Growing out awkward

My son has 3c with a few strands that are looser curls, Currently it is about 6 inches ling when stretched straight,
I absolutely love it, as does he, and we both want to let it grow out, however it's reached a strange stage. The issue we are having is it sticks out if tucked behind the ears, Yet it looks even worse if it's in front of them. So do I cut it around there until the rest grows longer, or is there any suggestions of what to do. I am currently using Ecostyler olive oil gel and washing it about once a week and co-washing 2 times in between that. I am too new to post a picture, sorry.

    Have you tried finger coiling his hair in that section while wet then allowing it to dry?
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I'm having this same problem and I'm 3c/4a. My hair has reached a stage, where sticking out is going to happen whether I like it or not.

    You can either continue to cut it, finger coil or, let the rest of the hair flop to sides so that way it all looks even,
