Component works, instance behaves differently

I have created a component for a realty property page, inside it has nested components with an auto layout.

There is a read more button that when pressed changes the information from one state to another that shows the whole paragraph of text. This works fine before making into a component, works fine as a component, but the second I drag it out of my assets the auto layout no longer expands in height to make room for the text and instead places the text behind the next section of the auto layout.

Hopefully I have made this clear, I am still learning and starting to delve into the more complex side of Figma.

Hey Christie! Are you able to share a copy of the file you’re working with? If not, no worries.

I can ask someone on the support side to take a look and provide some recs, and the visual would be helpful.
