I had a older android phone where contacts were backed up to the cloud, and having whatsapp. That phone broke, so I got a new android phone with whatsapp. This phone was able to get contacts restored. But the problem is, when my friends message me on whats app, the number says like +X (XXX) XXX-XXXX and with the option to add or block them. I would expect this if I didn't have this number in my contacts, however I have this number in the contacts exactly and it has a name. If I click add, it opens the contact and adds the same number below the already existing number, and then when I click save, nothing happens, the issue is still there.

The new phone is on android 9 (one UI).

Does anyone know how to fix it?
