On my iPhone I would open the phone and I would have a number 2 for example above the message and a missed call notification on the call icon.
Can I get this on my mate 20 pro?

OK..pinch the Home screen
Go to 'home screen settings'
Select 'app icon badges'
Select 'badge display mode'
Change it from 'new notification'
to 'unread messages'
