If your puffs did not rise, either there is too much liquid, flour was added before water boiled or your oven was too cool.

If your puffs came out soggy, the mix was beaten insufficiently, puffs not sufficiently cooked, or the oven door was opened too soon.

If your puffs did not hold shape, it was either because of the insufficient beating between addition of eggs, or mixture not cooled sufficiently when you added it into the tray.
