yeah it’s probably weakness and/or inhibition in the glute.  there are many exercises you can do for the glutes. it sounds like a single leg glute bridge might be good, with focus on maintaining a stable pelvis as you do the bridge especially on the weak side, and then squeezing and holding the glute at the top for 5 seconds.

single leg deadlifts are good too. again you want to make sure you can maintain the level pelvis (and proper torso position) as you bend down with the weight and then flex the glute strongly on the way up.

couch stretch should help with removing tightness in the hip flexors to enable the glute to fire. look up couch stretch here in MWOD.
