Sorry another head gasket question

The new HG I have has no where near the amount of sealant as the old one and it's not on both sides like the old one. Is the right?? The first pic is the block side of the HG. The second is is the cyl head side The third is the old gskt with a bead on both sides

the old sealant has been "squished" down, hence why it looks to cover more area.

there are aftermarket tubes that you can also utilize for a little more goop, but you want to keep those far away from anything that could possibly get internal.

Those are two different types of gaskets. The old one is MLS or Multi layer steel, and the new one is composite. The composite is more tolerant of surface imperfections. Who is the gasket maker?

Never heard of blueprint gaskets, and idk about the silicone on one side and not the other, I suppose they don't think the block side needs as much help. Is there a good reason you are using that composite one? If not I'd return it and pick up an MLS gasket like the one you pulled off of there.
