When I make a hat, my seam (where I join the row together then start the next row) is always on a diagonal, not straight up and down. Is it supposed to be straight or diagonal?
It should be straight. Your tension is not even.

Lol thanks! I created my own way to hold the yarn because the usual way I see people hold it was so uncomfortable and I was so slow. It wasn't running smoothly over my fingers and everything was too loose.
But clearly my way isn't working lol
If it's too loose, it might be an issue with your hook size, too. Just a thought. Sometimes it might be tough to make the seam perfectly straight, regardless of what you try. I like to just take it out and try again until it looks right to me. :)
Could it be caused from stretching it as I go? I know the last couple of rows of the hat I was stretching after each hdc.
It's not too noticable, but I can see it and its annoying lol
The stitches all look the same size and width apart.
