Why does my notification icon disappear after a very short period?

When I get a text message the icon shows at the top but then disappears. If I'm not looking at phone when one comes in, I don't even know i have a message!

Also, some apps I'm suppose to be getting notifications on, I don't even get?

Hi there. Can you check if you have do not disturb enabled? Go to Settings > Sounds settings (or Sound and Notification) > Interruptions > Make sure it says "Always interrupt".
