When I plug my father's Xiaomi 5X into my MacBook Pro, it shows up as a charger on the MacBook and I don't get the usual USB options on the phone. Tried it on two Macs with same result. Also tried my Pixel 2 with the same cable and that worked as expected.
Is there some setting in either the phone or laptop that I can change to make it recognise the phone for what it is?

This is called PD charging. There should be a setting in connection dialog. Also there should be the same options in Developer Settings
