I just noticed that when I move the cursor from the line in which asterisk=

It's probably Vim's "conceal" feature. What is the syntax/filetype of the f=
ile you are editing? Conceal is based on syntax highlighting.
You can set the 'conceallevel' option appropriately to prevent the hiding, =
but syntaxes which use the conceal feature probably do so for a reason.
