Default Head gasket?

I've taken the cylinder head off and found anti freeze down the side of the piston walls? Is this normal? The pics abit unclear but there's definitely anti freeze there 😐🤨

Default antifreeze

is it a 1.4tu in a 207 by any chance?
no its not normal. were you loosing antifreeze? looks like head gasket leaking at cylinders 2/3.
Are you changing it for an usual oil leak at the front?
check the heads flat and give it a good clean.
ensure you have a some liner protrusion in the block, you can Measure this with a steel rule and feeler gauges accurately enough. i think you need over 10 thou.

Liner protrusion? What's that? And no I've taken it apart cos it was burning oil really bad out the back end and done a compression test and led me to piston rings so in the process of doing that. Just having a go nyaelf. 1st time bare with me. Do I have to get the anti freeze out from the side of the pistons?

And no I wasn't losing antifreeze but the thermostat was broken so I imagine no anti freeze was getting let into the engine and it was just the same stuff going round

I dare say a little coolant was spilled into the cylinder when the head was removed. However if the thermostat was stuck closed and the engine overheated it might have caused a blown head gasket.
