If it’s a theme related issue, I suggest you get in touch with the theme author instead. That’s because the theme author can add anything to the theme that can cause issues with ACF (it can be the PHP or JS code).
Also, could you please check the JS console of your browser’s developer tools for any error messages with the gallery field?
