I enabled webp and purged the cache


I enabled webp and purged the cache.

When I check the content type of the image I see image/jpeg.

The content-type should be webp not JPEG. I am on the pro account.

Any ideas why is that?

You are correct, but this will just happen if Cloudflare was able to create a smaller WebP image out of the given resource and according to your settings.
Probably you have set the settings to “Lossless” which is often the reason a smaller WebP image can not be created.

Try switching to “Lossy” and make sure you have ticked the box “WebP”, after this clear cache again, then:

  1. open Dev Console
  2. Go to network tab
  3. disable Cache
  4. hardreload
  5. check Content Type again
