    I can see what you mean, and I can see that it is caused by the CSS styling in the theme that your form is using. This rule in particular is responsible:

    .form-dropdown {
      margin: 0;
      border-color: #a6a6a6;
      -webkit-appearance: menulist!important;
      -moz-appearance: menulist!important;
      appearance: menulist!important;
      border-width: 1px;

    There is an additional problem that is preventing us from fixing it, where the custom CSS code on your form appears to be having errors in it.

    In order to fix it, I would recommend completely removing your custom CSS code. You can do this by going to Setup & Embed > Preferences > Form Styles, and removing everything from the Inject Custom CSS field:

    After that is done, we simply need to add the CSS code that will fix the drop down in Chrome:

    .form-dropdown {
      -webkit-appearance: menulist-button !important;

    You should add this code by opening the Designer (Setup & Embed > Designer):

    Once there, switch to the CSS tab, and paste that code into the textbox:

    With that done, save your form, and it should display correctly from now on - even with Allow Multiple set to ON. You can see a demo form with the fixes applied, here:
