I disagree with how my teammate is critiquing my work—do I talk to them about it? Knowledge Base

Yes. Unlike "bad" critiques, it is possible to have a well-considered critique from a teammate that doesn't focus on the aspects that are important to you. In some cases, it's simply a matter of your teammate neglecting to read your notes; in other cases, your teammate's approach to critiques may differ from what you're used to; and it's just as likely that it's both of these issues.

So, before you approach your teammate, consider the issues in their critiques that you are struggling with. Articulate them first to yourself to ensure you're able to communicate them effectively to your teammate.

Open and honest communication is essential for maintaining good relationships. If necessary, involve your team captain as a mediator.
