Blender doesn't create a new face when extruding

Hello there! I apologize for my lack of knowledge, but for some reason, whenever I try to extrude certain edges, Blender doesn't create a new face as expected, but simply stretches the edge as if I were to hit G. The strange thing is that it only happens on certain edges, but others work fine.

How it should look (screenshot from the video):

How it actually looks for me:

Anyone have a solution to this?

    Hey iitdidnotcomehome , it nearly came home , next year we will bring it home ⚽ 

    You have it right, the effect you are seeing is the subsurface modifier smoothing the corner making it look rounded.

    In the example shot from the lesson, Kent actually had duplicated verts some how, which is why it looks different. Just after this Kent fixes the problem and continues to have geometry just like yours.

    You may have extruded a little further but yours looks good. 👍
