Size discrepancy when comparing fonts

Hello, currently, I am having an issue when comparing two fonts. I am working on a custom version of a font and wanted to compare the customised version with the original font. For this, I used Compare Fonts, which usually works fine. Oddly, when I compare the two fonts now, one font is displayed slightly larger than the other one, as in, simply scaled up a bit. I cannot see where this issue might stem from, as the UPM size has remained unchanged and the weight is the same.

Any ideas why this might be occurring? Thanks!

UPM value: also checked custom parameters?

Yes, none such parameter was defined. Checking the metrics, though, I found that I had changed the Ascender and Descender values, as they were inconsistent with the drawn outlines. Reverting this solved the issue. My mistake, thank you!
