I've had situations where H++ suggest one protonation state, then a short md simulation takes the system to a slightly different conformation that seem more prevalent but that yields another protonation state if sent to H++ again. Use all biochemical knowledge that you can muster to check that the output makes sense. Focus on residues that you suspect might be important for the overall question you address.

Thanks for this! Is it not better just to use pK values from the
literature corresponding to given residue side chain? My protein is an
