Default Right? or Not?

I know that car seat fitting is most difficult for 1) new first-time parents and 2)newborns, but would you say something is wrong with this fitting?

The chest clip looks low to me, and the buckle and straps at the hips look very high. Am I wrong? I would be happy to hear that I am.

Shoulder straps look like they should go in a lower slot, too.

The shoulder straps need to be taken down at least 1 slot. They should come below the shoulders for rear facing.
The straps at the hips looks too high to me but I don't know much about how to fix that LOL I'm definitely no expert.

Note: Not a CPST, just a mom who has buckled lots of babies into lots of seats.

It *looks* like the straps are twisted between the hips and the seat, making them lie higher than they would without the twist.
Shoulder straps should be in a slot *below* the babies shoulders for rear facing.
The chest clip is probably a smidge low, but not too much.

What seat is this if you don't mind me asking? The shoulder straps actually look much too high. They need to be at or below the shoulders.

Did the head pillows come WITH the seat? They do not look familiar, so I'm wondering if they are aftermarket. If they were purchased separately from the seat, then they need to be removed. Aftermarket products are a big no no.

If it were me, I'd move the crotch buckle back a slot, assuming the straps are not just twisted. That would bring the buckle down.

I'd also put the chest clip a bit higher and move the straps down a slot.

I'm no expert, but that's what I feel needs to be done

There's nothing wrong or unsafe about the hip portion of the harness being high. It generally falls higher on a newborn.

Ditto everyone else though. Harness straps are much too high and the after market head rest needs to come out.

I don't know which seat it is. I am sure that the head support is aftermarket.

Who has a favorite website to share with new moms? Preferably, one that addresses the aftermarket pillow thing, too. I know that they won't believe me without some back-up.

The seat is a Graco SnugRide Click Connect which should have come with an infant insert. If the insert is perhaps missing, she can get a new one through Graco.

This is what the inserts look like:
