No, but a judge takes away Scott's visitation of his child.

(SPOILER) At the end of the film Scott leaves Charlie with his mom, and goes to live at the North Pole.

The entire movie is based around a father who is Santa Clause, but his ex wife and her husband believe he is pretending to be to win the affection of his son. It is believed he is gaslighting, but he is actually Santa Clause

It is not framed as horror, but the main character's body does change slowly without his consent into a more Santa Claus-ish body (gaining weight, excessive facial hair).

Not really but the main character does squeeze down a few chimneys awkwardly, though it’s in a very animated and distorted way and there is no real sign of struggle or distress.

No, however there is a lot of weight talk and judgement. The main character gains weight as he becomes santa claus and some of the discussions of weight gain could be very triggering

In the beginning Scott says “Neil’s head comes to a point” to mock his intelligence and also calls him “Dr. Pinhead”. These statements use the disability microcephaly as an insult.

No visual sexual content but there is one statement in the beginning that implies adultery between an employee and a secretary. In another scene there is basically cat calling by the main character while walking down the street and appearing as Santa clause or a close proxy of Santa.
