Most likely the wrong version of jQuery is configured in your HubSpot settings.
If your current website, landing pages, or blog are using templates or a theme that requires the jQuery to be preloaded via the HubSpot setting, we recommend updating it from 1.7x to 1.11x and then unchecking the box later when you are no longer using those templates and/or theme for your pages.
We are currently in the process of removing the dependence on jQuery for POWER theme and will release updated instructions when the newest version becomes available.
This is currently planned for v26.
In this process, we will remove jQuery and will move to Vanilla JS, which will help improve page speed and page performance.
The theme contains a newer version of jQuery than what HubSpot includes by default. If you don't make these updates, elements on your page will not load due to the conflict between jQuery versions.
