As others have said here is no wiggle room here. The LOTG clearly states the signal.

1 thing to be mindful is I once got picked up in an observation that my arm wasnt dead straight but kind of ****ed, kind of like an L but not quite as a red indian "how" as an L looks. So be mindfuk the arm is raised above the head and your arm is straight. It is more aesthetic than anything else but could be worth a mark to some observers.

Yes, try to make sure your arm touches you ear as that way no one can say it isn't straight.

Given this is posted in the forum for ARs and 4th officials, I took this to mean how would an AR flag for an indirect free kick.

The answer is I don't think there is a specific one. You'd have to flag for a foul as normal, and then verbally communicate that the offence you spotted would be an indirect free kick.

I just saw that and wondered if that's what it meant. Would explain the otherwise strange question.
