Question: Why don't contacts match on iPhone and iPad?

Hello, I have a new iPad 5th generation and I just set it up over the weekend. I have iCloud turned on for both my iPhone 6S and the new iPad. Now I have multiple duplicate contacts on both devices, and the total number of contacts are not matching from my iPhone to my iPad.

Anyone else have this issue? Is there a fix for it? Please provide feedback. Thank you.

iPad Wi-Fi, iOS 11.2.6, 5th Generation 2017 iPad
