[Resolved] Hair particle/children laying flat when curved around an object

I have an issue with hair particles/children lay flat, as if in strips, when curving around a mesh. I expected the children to spread in more of a cylindrical shape the strand rather than lay flat. I don’t recall this ever having been an issue before (but it has been a while since I’ve styled hair), but I could be wrong.
Is it possible a setting is causing this? Is there a way to fix this?

After overlooking the setting I dont know how many different times in the last week, I finally found it.

It is the roundness setting in children, if anyone else has this issue
