How do I remove the contact/call button from the top of my text messages?

Whenever I open my text messages, there is a call button at the top of the screen where the contact's name is placed. I have an LG Enact, which means that my screen will rotate to use the keyboard, and often when I'm scrolling or the screen is rotating, I'll accidentally press that call button. It's getting very annoying - if I want to call them, I'll access the phone app, not messaging. Is there a way to remove this button?

I can understand it being annoying to constantly hit call when scrolling through text messages lilsagestar. I'm sorry for this. There isn't a way to remove the button. You can go into Settings and Uncheck Auto Rotate Screen so it may minimize accidentally calling.
