As you can see his half barre is not perfectly vertical, but mine is almost at 45° when I put the ring finger on the freatboard. šŸ˜¢

I missed this earlier!  The exercises I linked should help your overall dexterity.  But on particular passage you could just move your pinky from the 5th to the 7th fret.  In the long term it's best to slowly build dexterity until you can do it the same way he is playing it because that's the most efficient way to play the passage.  Hope that helps!
