We hope this answer reaches you in good health and Islamic spirit.

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Jurisprudence perspective.

You ( The Mukallaf )  can only start Taqlid (in matters concerning the laws of religion – apart from those that are indispensable and indisputable [such as the obligation to perform prayers (ṣalāh) ), of a living Marji ( The most learned Jurist ).

اَللّٰهُ أَعْلَم‎
(Allah(awj) Knows best)
