Need email to remove empty fields

So I need a hidden field for the db, but not for the email sent. Since there are so many forms in one form I only want the populated fields but since that field is always populated it always shows even though there's no other data in that particular form (within the forms form) :). Here's what the email looks like:

Form Submitted 4-23-2019 | 7:04 PM UTC

csFormName: Core Support Form Specs

dropdownws: on
wsFormName: Anti-Wrinkle Form Specs
abrFormName: Adjustable bowed roller Form Specs
fbrFormName: Fixed Bowed Roller Form Specs
AntiWrinkleGroup 3: Scroll Roll

isaFormName: Inline Slitting Assembly Form Specs
sctFormName: Shear Cut Edge Trim Assembly Form Specs
usFormName: Unwind Stand Assembly Form Specs
rsFormName: Rewind Stand Assembly Form Specs
cmaFormName: Web Accumulator Form Specs

I don't want all these fields to show up, like rsFormName, ehrFormName, irFormName etc. I only want them to show up if a checkbox (the checkbox that expands the form) is checked. I guess the problem is not the Email Sent code but in the forms If, Then statement. I got my logic wrong I guess: In the hidden fields value, I write:

<?php echo((isset($_POST["dropdownws"])?("Anti-Wrinkle Form Specs"):"")); ?>

It doesn't see if the dropdownws is set. So, it sends no info. I don't know how to write it without expressly putting it in value="Anti-Wrinkle Form Specs" and having it (and all) show up on the email.

I also had tried : (this is the whole input field)

<input type="hidden" id="csFormName" name="csFormName" value="<?php if(isset($_POST["dropdowncs"])) { echo "Core Support Form Specs"; } ?>"

Sorry if I'm confusing you.

Thanks much.
