Please help me out

Is it my indentation?

def just_right(hello):
    while len(just_righ)< 5:
        print("your string is too shoty")
            if just_right > 5:
                print ("your string is too long")
                return True

No need of a while, checking with the len is correct, then it should be elif and lastly only, else, check on the indentation, after getting all of the above mentioned correct, so the code, works like

def just_right(string_par):
    if len(string_par) < 5:
        return "Your string is too short"
    elif len(string_par) > 5:
        return "Your string is too long"
        return True
