That is not how you end a paragraph. \\ ends the line. See this for more help: https://www.overleaf.com/learn/latex/Paragraphs_and_new_lines

Paragraph 1.

Paragraph 2.

or 

Paragraph 1.\par
Paragraph 2.

So \\ is not used to start a paragraph with indentation. It is simply newline character. enter image description here

Just enter an empty line to start a paragraph with an indentation. enter image description here

You also have the options to use \smallskip, \medskip, and \bigskip. Do not forget to add a free line after them.

  • Me neither, but the question was also a bit unclear. Just wanted to give a further option which was not mentioned yet.
