you could have had it for a while, from a previous partner. You don’t say if you had one before him. I don’t think it’s possible unless one of you have had sex with another person.

Without more details it is hard to say , like for instance why you got tested, symptoms etc. remember chlamydia testing has small false positive and false negative rates - so your test has a small chance of being false positive, and his test of being false negative. It is better to treat both people if one person has had a positive result , regardless .
