Help with jagged edges in Indesign

Some of the photos that I put into InDesign automatically get jagged edges, even without me rotating the photo. In Photoshop, the image is perfect but when I transfer it, I get the inconsistencies. I turned up my display performance to high and even tried printing it (with all of the data) and it still shows up. 

 

I have included photos of the issue.

 

Is there a setting I need to change to fix this?

 

Thanks

Check the Effective PPI vs the Actual PPI

ensure your images are linked correctly (File>Place and no warnings in the Links panel)

InDesign creates a lower res proxy image for the preview of placed files—the original linked file is then used for PDF export or print—so you would never see the original’s exact pixels. Also, your capture shows the page zoomed in to 600% —InDesign’s zoom scaling is relative to the print output, so you are viewing at 6x the print size. At that magnification I would expect to see pixels even with a 300ppi Effective Resolution.
