Trouble with Display flex challenge

Tell us what’s happening:

So in this challenge I’m tasked with giving multiple elements the rule of “display: flex;” I believe I have done as it’s asked. However, I keep getting an error for not applying the rule to the .follow-btn. I have looked at the video and text help and they both have what I already put in, so I’m not sure why it isn’t reading correctly. I also noticed that the “follow” button itself doesn’t even show up on the display.

Your code so far


<style>
body {
  font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
}
header {
  display: flex;
}
header .profile-thumbnail {
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  border-radius: 4px;
}
header .profile-name {
  display: flex;
  margin-left: 10px;
}
header .follow-btn {
  display: flex;
  margin: 0 0 0 auto;
}
header .follow-btn button {
  border: 0;
  border-radius: 3px;
  padding: 5px;
}
header h3, header h4 {
  display: flex;
  margin: 0;
}
#inner p {
  margin-bottom: 10px;
  font-size: 20px;
}
#inner hr {
  margin: 20px 0;
  border-style: solid;
  opacity: 0.1;
}
footer {
  display: flex;
}
footer .stats {
  display: flex;
  font-size: 15px;

footer .stats strong {

Hello!
I have reset the code multiple times and it still gives me the same error. I have even tried copy and pasting the HTML from the example in the help section, thinking it may be something wrong with the HTML itself, but I still get the error.
