  • Component changed from General to Editor

The header on your site has a Cover block, which clips or hides its overflow.

For a quick fix on that site, you could go to the Editor, open the Styles menu (half-light, half-dark circle icon), open that panel's 3-dot "More" menu, select "Additional CSS" and paste the following styles:

.wp-block-cover {
  overflow: visible;
.wp-block-navigation-submenu {
  background-color: #8cc63f;

(the submenu would need a background color)
