Is a common sense for you to know the difference between your majesty in your Highness?
Me and a friend on discord were debating that their friends and I wanna prove them wrong honestly

This is not a question about Mathematics. It need moving to some category like
All Categories > Society & Culture > Royalty

between "your majesty" AND "your highness"???
No not at all. Is there a difference?

For the English monarchy the princes and princesses such as William, Andrew, Anne etc. are His/Her Royal Highness (HRH) while the Queen is Her Majesty (HM).
As I understand it, if the queen talks to you directly, you respond with Your Majesty the first time you speak and thereafter Ma'am (rhymes with ham).

Majesty is normally used for male monarch. Highness is used for female queen and female person.

A few complete sentences would go a long way toward making your question clear. Try diagramming them.
I think you may be asking whether the distinction between those two forms of address is common sense. No, sense (common or otherwise) has nothing to do with it. It may be a question of common usage or common knowledge, but not sense. There is no logic underlying either of those courtesy addresses. They are only conventions.

Your majesty....a king or queen.
Your highness...a prince or princess.
