Custom fields don't have icons.  Could you explain what you mean by "icon", as I'm not grasping what you're looking at.

Can you add an icon to 'Blockpoint Change' like the one 'Priority' has?


Ah, I see. No, you can't. The priority field is a system field that has additional functionality that enables the icon to be added and rendered. The built-in custom field types do not have any icon functionality. You'd need to find/write a custom field that supports the addition of such icons
