I'm new to overleaf so I'm using a template to make a list of Theorems, Definitions, Axioms, etc. It looks pretty messy because it looks like this:

Theorem 1.

Axiom 1.

Theorem 2.

Theorem 3.

Definition 1.

here's my setup:



how can I get it to be more organized to say

Theorem 1:

Axiom 2:

Theorem 3:

Definition 4: ...?

Also, when I add a name to something, for example,

\begin{definition}[Absolute Value]

it looks like this: Definition 3 (Absolute Value).

How can I get the entire thing to be bold and for the period to be a colon?
