KDE window buttons enlarged

Hello,

I booted up my pc only to find that the buttons on any KDE window are unusually enlarged, which i would like to revert. I have tried to decrease the font size but that didn't help.

This is an old screenshot i had lying around were the buttons are normal.

Here you can see the original button size.
Here you can see the enlarged buttons.

I did not change anything by myself, I just started my machine like i would normally.
