DNS not working when proxied

So i have a VPS server and I bought a domain and changed its nameservers to cloudflare’s, then added a type A dns record of my VPS ip address which runs the servers and everything. When the record is proxied through cloudlfare (the little orange cloud toggle is on), DNS does not resolve to my VPS IP, however, when the record is NOT proxied (little orange cloud becomes gray) it does resolve and leads the visitor to my VPS server… What am i doing wrong?

When proxied, the IP address returned will be for Cloudflare. Traffic to your VPS first goes through Cloudflare (for protections, filters and services to be applied), Cloudflare will then pass the request to your VPS.
