How do I get a  picture showing in google search results next to my listing? Is this called a profile picture?

Already had a photo saved under this heading but it doesn't show up in search results

@Andy B unfortunately we cannot set a specific image to display for the results. It can vary depending on the users search intent.

There isn't any image showing. All the other listings have one?

Does the image show in your GMB dashboard > Photos?

Yes it does. A picture has just started to appear in search results but its not on the GMB dashboard but it is the first picture that appears on our website?
Is that where these images are coming from?

Ah yes. Google will actually pull in images from companies websites or other sources. There are ways to get them removed but it takes some time. The first being flagging the image and next updating the robots.txt file so Google Crawler is blocked on the image.
