This citation has an incorrect year of Baptism
The correct information which shows the year as 1635 can be found in the Parish Register
Film # 004023180 Image 686
Can you tell me where to report this as I can't edit the record?
Putting each URL in a line by itself causes the URL to corrupt.
Your URLs are https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7VH-SJN and https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6QR3-DM8
Pedantry alert: the error is not in the citation (the reference identifying the document or index entry), but in the index (the extract of key facts from the document).
Rescued URLs: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J7VH-SJN and https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6QR3-DM8. (I can't find a legible year anywhere on that image, so I don't blame the indexers if they got it off by one.)
It is a fact of life that indexes have errors. Handwriting can be hard to read, volunteers can have more enthusiasm than skill/knowledge, and typos happen. Sometimes, these errors can be corrected, but sometimes not, or not yet -- but when the document is also available, as here, these errors are a minor inconvenience. After all, the index served its purpose: you found the record.
FS does not use any of its limited resources to correct individual entries in published indexes, so until/unless the user-index-editing function is expanded to apply to this collection, the year will be off by one. You can still use the index as a source in Family Tree; you can edit the source's title to reflect the correct year, and make a note of the correction in the Notes/Description field. Or, you can bypass the index and use either your Source Box or the URL to attach the image directly as your source.

Believe me there is no criticism here as I have transcribed several wills and know exactly how difficult handwriting and latinised words can be. I deduced the year from the month sequence and realized that it was a year out but as stated the year was not identified. I then checked the record on the Cornwall OPC and found that their transcribers agreed with my findings. I don't think a year makes any difference back in the 1600's particularly when nobody else with that name was having an event but just posted in case someone wanted to get it altered.
Oh yes I'm grateful for the tip on the URL's and as you can guess, I am having my first post on this forum.
