I always put Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in the manger. Then I group the wise men together on one side and the shepherds with their animals on the other. All of them facing in to see the baby. If your set comes with an angel I would put it on top of the manger

Most people put baby Jesus in the middle in the manger, and mary and joseph either on either side of Jesus or to one side of him...   most people set the shepherds on one side, the wisemen on the other, and the angel sometimes will hang on the top of the manger if you have an angel... not all nativities do.

then, they scatter the animals around where they think they belong (sheep near the shepherd, cow and donkey toward one side or to the back of the manger, if manger is big enough...

Iam confused cause all pics i see Joseph is kneeling with mary. But the guy i have that kneeling has a crown as do 2 others. Than the one i thought was Joseph is standing with a (idk proper name) a head wrap type thig and has a cane and light. The one kneeling looks to be handing a gift

Theres no specific place, but in ours, Jesus goes in the middle, Mary behind the cradle, Joseph to the right of it, the kneeling wise man goes to the left of the cradle, the two others wait behind him, the cow and donkey go in the back right corner of the manger, the shepherd and his sheep are on the right side behind Joseph, and the Angel goes on the little shelf that's inside the manger. Ours looks just like this one, only the little side building thing on the right is raised more with a shelf under it, ours has an angel, and the people are painted a little different:

This is the manger that we have
