This is the way you learn the F chord but the are other ways people play it in that positions one of them being the thumb over technique.  I use that for most chords.   So the first fret on the 6th string if you haven't already learnt is an F note.   So when you learn bar chords that will be your root note for your F bar chord in that first position.   
.
So put that bar thing aside for minute.  Me personally if i'm playing that F chord you have in the diagram, my thumb will come over the 'top' side of the fret board and fret that low F note 1st fret 6th string.   So my chord voicing then have more low range.  So the F i'm fretting on the 6th string is an octave lower than the lowest F note if the chord you have pictured.   It will all make sense as you go along.   There are so many different voicing s or ways of constructing and playing chords.  So the F chord you learn in the beginning is part of your first set of chords you learn , open chords. It's good that you're noticing these things but try not let them worry you or anything, you learn in stages and it's for a reason i guess.  Hope that didn't confuse matters.

edit, i just realised you had a yt video i didn't watch it.. but i'm assuming that's what whoever the video guy is was doing.   It doesn't mean you can't play a normal, of course you can.

edit 2.  yep it was clear in the first 5 seconds that he was playing the F with the thumb over to catch the low F.

At 6.55, he did a F#m on the 9th fret.

But I thought the chord should be like this?

why didn't he nvr press on the second string for fret 10? And I wonder if his index finger is pressed on the 1st and 2nd string of the 9th fret. If the f#m can be played like this, it would be easier for me. So asking what is the correct way.

The F#m chord is as you post in your graphic when played at fret 9.
It can be played as a 6-string barre chord at fret 2 also.
The player in this video is NOT playing F#m at either fret 2 or fret 9.
He is playing F# power chords only.
Three string chords using fingers 1, 2 and 3 of his fretting hand.

Note.
A power chord is neither Major nor minor and so can be used as a direct replacement for either type of chord - this is commonly done when the guitar is being played with overdrive / distortion.

There's more than one position for any chord. F#m requires playing F#, A, and C# notes (I think, someone correct me if I'm wrong).
