How could everything look normal for my hamstring in an MRI but I still can't stretch 9 mos after injury?

In brief: Scar / adhesions
The inflammation of the injury could cause the adhesions and scar tissue which makes the tendon tissue less flexible.

In brief: Healing with scar...
It is not uncommon for hamstring and other muscle injuries to lead to chronic problems.
Muscle injuries initially heal with scar tissue. Without proper stretching and strengthening rehab exercises the injury can heal in a stiffened and weakened state and lead to chronic stiffness and risk for re-injury. You should see a doctor for further evaluation to rule out more serious injury and guide rehab.
