Is the
Intel Core i5-9400F Coffee Lake 6-Core 2.9 GHz
Compatible with my Asus H170-PRO motherboard
 
No. An H170 motherboard is compatible with 6xxx and 7xxx CPUs. You need an H270 motherboard for a 9xxx series CPU.
Did you have your coffee this morning?

H170 or H270 motherboards are not compatible with any 9xxx CPUs like the I5 9400f
You will need a 300 series motherboard. H110, B360, H370, and Z370 will all work with the latest bios.
B365 and Z390 should work, although I'm not sure if a bios update might be needed here for the newer 9th gen chips.
