A hybrid structure is an average of all the molecule's resonance forms/structures! And if the question asks to draw all the resonance forms of a molecule, which it usually does, you would just draw out each form (not the hybrid structure). I think we usually draw out each individual resonance form and we only have to know theoretically that they all contribute to an overall hybrid.
The actual structure of the molecule is a hybrid of all possible resonance structures- after drawing all possible resonance structures, you can just draw arrows to indicate that the actual structure is actually an average of all these structures.
