Is there a way to keep a full number with a leading zero? It keeps dropping the zero at the beginning and I need it to show up.

Yes, don't use a number field. Use a short text or multiple short text. If you want it to be numeric but with leading zeros, use a regular expression validation like /^[0-9]*$/ to ensure that only numbers can be entered, rather than using the advanced question option "only numbers".
