Block generates sideways

Made a custom block which has Y axis rotation, placing by hand is normal but when naturally generated in Caves they're facing north instead of up, how do I go about fixing this?

The simplest method would be to just change the default orientation of the block. There are more complex ways of doing this, but I would recommend just changing the default arrangement of the textures, and then if you really want it to be placed by the player a certain way, add a procedure that changes the block's direction when it's placed. (It will be much easier to change how the player places the block than to change how it generates.)
