No "Report error" available?
On the profile John Lumsden there is a source https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XY61-7H3 that gives the same date for christening and birth, yet elsewhere the same reference gives a different birthdate, exactly a month earlier.

This, no longer seems to be available:
"How to report an error in the FamilySearch Research Wiki
- While on any page in the Wiki, on the left side of the screen, find the Give Feedback section.
- Click Report a Problem."
The only option is to come to the forum.
Is there a way to report/discuss details like this?

This is simply an indexing error, which goes back a long way. I'm afraid you will find many such errors in the records of FamilySearch and probably all of the other, major genealogy websites, too.
There is no provision for it to be changed, as going to the page which provides further detail (see https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XY61-7H3?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=MB4Z-SWJ) you will see, when clicking on "Edit" a message reading, "Edit unavailable. Sorry this record cannot be edited". In certain cases (usually more recently indexed records), an edit facility is available.
All you can do in this case is to go to the source attached to John Lumsden and add a note under "Reason This Source is Attached" to advise of the incorrect birthdate, and what it should read (16 July 1830).
To clarify, FamilySearch do not (at this time) accept any such reports, as there are no resources / section available to deal with the correction of such indexing errors.0
