Crib mattress gap

Is this too much of a gap between the head of crib and the crib mattress? Is it safe to fill in the gap with a rolled up blanket?

We got an Ikea crib for Yarly Jr., but can't seem to find a crib mattress that's quite long enough to fit snugly with the end of the crib. The CSPC says
that you shouldn't be able to fit in more than two fingers between the mattress and crib. The first we ordered was clearly too short. Second one, we can fit two fingers between the mattress and the end of the crib, but three won't fit unless you really cram them. So this seems ok, but I'm still worried! What about rolling up a blanket firmly and closing up the gap?
