You need to move both pawns, otherwise the second pawn blocks the mate, in most cases (except when the bishop/queen/whatever is on line 4). You still get a fool mate, but not in the minimal number of moves. In fact when you send the solution, you may need to specify like "x positions allow fool mate in 2, y positions allow fool mate in 3, z positions allow fool mate in 4", etc(up to you how high you want to go , because if they are not very specific about it, so it can be interpreted one way or the other.
