Mutate-Button not giving usual results

Hi, as NON beginner I'm getting 11900 points, but it appears that the mutate-Button wan't give the usual results - in No. of hydrophobics. Manual mutation to hydrophobics is working, but gives less points.

Q: Something wrong in this puzzle settings?

Corrected in future puzzles

Thanks for the note WBarme1234! One of the recent updates changed how scoring works in Foldit, and the puzzles need to be tweaked accordingly. The Beginner puzzles slipped through the cracks, and that's why you're seeing this weird behavior. We may leave this puzzle as is, for the sake of convenience, but when it is recycled, the weird behavior should be corrected.
