I'm not sure why this is happening, but I can only use my widget to make the text bigger...not smaller. im unable to switch from size 2 text to size 1 text, but I can do it vice versa (switch size 1 to 2)...I set up an if/else statement at the end of the code that I thought would serve this purpose, but its not working.

I can make it smaller again, but only when I send a new message via serial monitor or the messenger in the Arduino IOT cloud dashboard app

maybe someone can help?

arduino MKR WiFi 1010, Arduino IOT Cloud/dashboard/widgets, 0.96 inch OLED display, also there's an LED function thrown in there, but you can ignore that part

  Arduino IoT Cloud Variables description

  The following variables are automatically generated and updated when changes are made to the Thing

  String message;
  CloudSwitch textSize;

  Variables which are marked as READ/WRITE in the Cloud Thing will also have functions
  which are called when their values are changed from the Dashboard.
  These functions are generated with the Thing and added at the end of this sketch.

Why are you clearing the screen straight after writing to it?
Code:
display.setTextSize(1);
display.setTextColor(WHITE);
display.setCursor(0,20);
display.println(message);
display.display();
display.clearDisplay(); /////// Here ///////
