I installed the version from Synaptic (3.08) and it is okay. I have in my notes to not install the one from Appcenter but I believe that was an issue unrelated to the OP's issue.

You could also just click on the vlc icon on the dock which will minimize it.

I am using the flatpak version of VLC along with OS X window controls and I have the minimize button.

Tweaks do not really help, most windows follow the decoration (e.g., "minized on right" or "windows style") but several apps (VLC, SM PLayer, UM PLayer, Virtualbox, Teamviewer, DoubleCommander, Gigolo) don't.

If you are on Hera in the AppCenter app look for "GNOME Tweaks" and install that. After it downloads click open. On the Window tab there is "Minimize" switch that you can flip on to show the minimize on the GNOME apps.

You can install Tweaks and check window controls in Appearance tab. On layout you can choose your style
