Boundary data shows as point - upload from UK census data

Hi all, 

I'm having trouble with showing boundaries on my map - they're showing up as points and the 'change styles' only offers different points or a heat map. 


My data comes from Home | ONS Geography Portal  where I downloaded Local Authority boundary map data. I have opened it in…  where the data shows as a shape/outline/irregular polygon. I wanted to select only certain Local Authorities to show, so I downloaded the data, edited out the Local Authorities I didn't want and uploaded a csv file back. 


The uploaded data comes up as points, rather than polygons. The data contains latitudes, longitudes, area shape and area length (but the last two are not selected and will not allow me to select them).


Does anyone have any idea why the same data (same format, just fewer rows) is not coming up in boundaries but as points?


Any help would be much appreciated!
