Alien Bob from Alien Characters Yaphit from The Orville

Hi everyone. I’d just like to say first up that I am really enjoying The Orville. However, it’s been brought to my attention that Yaphit is very similar to my character Alien Bob which I created in 2007 and am still writing stories for. See images above. To be honest, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do here. Take legal action? Offer to write a Yaphit storyline for Seth? I’d much rather have more Yaphit episodes than a legal case. What do you think I should do?
