This translation is kind of ambiguous. "Seu" in this sentence could be read as "your( refering to the disclaimer" or "his( refering to teh person the disclaimer is referencing".

"Ele é mais baixo que o pai dele" would be a closer translation.

Surely 'menos alto' is as good as 'mais baixo'

"Menos alto" is a bit uncommon.
