Should dealer first deal face up or down?

I see in casino tournaments where the dealer shows his first card face up and then the second card (hole) around is face down….

I’ve also seen where dealer deals their first card face down and second card is also face down but then they flip/reveal the first card (why not just deal face up like first scenario to begin with?)

And then there’s one where dealer deals first face down and second time around have the SECOND card (batch) face up.

Which is correct (official)?

Some may think this doesn’t matter but doesn’t it make a big difference since the first reveal card being an ace offers players insurance but if second reveal is ace, there wouldn’t be one, etc
