How to better straighten my hair as a male with shortish hair?
Ask them to show you how to straighten your hair. The general rule is to section off the hair, so start at the bottom of your head and clip up the rest of the hair. Straighten that, then bring down more hair, clip up the rest, and straighten the new pieces. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube on how to straighten hair of all lengths and textures. If you are straightening your hair regularly, please invest in a heat protectant spray, it helps protect your hair from the intense heat of straightening.

Try heat protectant and I recommend a titanium straightener rather than a ceramic.
