I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7. Most of my contacts look like this, which is how I want them:

Are both these 'contacts' from the same contacts folder? Or are you trying to compare a contact in your personal contacts against a contact in a public folder, or from a Global address list?
In Outlook it is possible to build new forms and items. It is completely possible to replace the standard contacts form for a specific folder.
Perhaps you or someone built a custom contact form and placed it in the Organization Form Library. Perhaps some of your contacts are based on a different form.
Anyway, if these contacts are in a public folder, there may not be anything you can do about them.
If they are in a folder in your mailbox, then simply export them as csv, or some other format, then re-import them.
Here are some links about Outlook custom forms:
