Currently in Wordpress 5.1, I create custom fields including a description field using the text editor of worpress, however I encounter a problem no line break is made. Is there a function for the line break to work

You should use the filter to show the description. Try to replace $your_description with the custom field value.

$content = apply_filters('the_content', $your_description);
echo !empty($your_description) ? $content : __('Nothing to show!', 'your_textdomain');
