Mortgage interest deduction question.?

On my 1098 form from the lender, it lists the mortgage interest in box 1 and points paid in box 2. Now, on Schedule A, Line 10, it says “Home mortgage interest and points reported to you on Form 1098.”.

I want to know if I will just enter the amount from box 1 on form 1098 or if I should combine the amounts from box 1 and 2 on form 1098 and enter the total on line 10 on schedule C.

Thanks.

It’s a mortgage on a new place. Not a re-fi.
