I searched online and found the following explanation: https://german.stackexchange.com/questions/36010/why-is-there-no-declension-for-the-comparative-adjective-weniger
Some adjectives like wenig, etwas, mehr, manch, solch, viel, welch are called as Adjektive mit Nullartikeldeklination
Adjektive mit Nullartikeldeklination
Because saying "adjectives without article declension" would be hard...? I once joked about how a linguist might use "Substantive" instead of "nouns" for German grammar, but that's seriously what's going on here. You explain German grammar with English, not with German.
"weniger" is not in the genitive case. It's in the comparative degree.
