It it’s returning false that means that ACF is not finding a value for the field.
There could be several reason for this.
The first is that ACF does not know the post ID to get the value from. That depends on where your code is located. Is it in “The Loop”? Will need more context. What template file is this in. Where in the template does it appear?
