TTL Not Updating

Hello - We’re trying to do a domain ownership validation which requires a TXT record with a TTL of 3600 (1hr). However, when when we created the record with a 1HR TTL, it’s showing as 5 min.

I used a few different sites such as MXToolbox to verify the domain/record and all say 5min. Due to this we’re unable to do domain validation.

I’m unable to reproduce this.
