This is how it is designed. Yes No column gives you single Checkbox. When Selected it is 'Yes' and when not selected it is 'No'. So either way it is mandatory. If user has not selected it means he wanted to select No. You can also set default value which controls by default it would be selected or not.

enter image description here

Hope this helps...Happy coding..!!

It’s the default behavior.

When create a Yes/No column, we need to select the default value which only has Yes and No option. If user not selects any value when he creates an item, the column will be populated with default value.
