By default, WordPress shows all posts content on the homepage and this can make your homepage load slower or make it difficult to read. Adding the “Continue Reading Button” / “Read More Button” link is the best solution to fix this issue on these posts. You can add this button in that position that you think it's enough text to show for that particular post.
The first thing you need to do is to specify the position that you want the “Continue Reading” button. You can split it into paragraphs (blocks) by just pressing Enter. After that, click the Add block “Plus”. A new dialog will be shown.
At this point, you just need to add the “More” Block
