If it otherwise is hard to distinguish, use the following command to see the date and time of when your booted kernel was built.
$ uname -a
And if it not the kernel you intended, do a listing of where your kernels are installed, i.e.
$ ls -lt /boot
And find the latest one, and trace that file and path to whatever boot loader/kernel name you want to use.
