I think it's a 24" which is too short, obviously lol so when I switch to the other needle on the same round, I should pull tight?

Ah, yes, too short. It just puts too much tension at the loops between parts of the knitting. You could go to a larger needle or switch to dpns and mark the beginning of round. Tugging a little on the first stitch after you switch needles may help but it may also just make it a tug-o-war with the needles.

I think you can ML the needle though, I've done it with the KPs needles. Pull the cord a little more and that can bring the 2 sets of sts closer together.

I'm so glad you figured out what was wrong. Luckily you weren't too far along on the booties. Other than the gap, your stitches look so nice and even, truly beautiful.
