When I click my memojis, it only allows me to change my pose. I want to edit it.

Did you scroll up or sideways? You should see the words, face, brows eyes, nose, etc. by scrolling sideways. And the new choices by scrolling up.

I created one for my son as a contact… when I go into the already created Memoji to edit, it only lets me change the pose… from that screen I have the choice to click Done, Assign to Contact, or Delete. Am I missing something??
thanks for any insight!

I edited my Memoji and somehow deleted it from my settings even though it shows up on the edit page. How do I get it back in my settings so it shows up on my texts.
