I don't understand here Database schema documentation for the public data dump and SEDE the meaning of comments.score. Because I don't see any comment that has a score. So this means it is trivial field?

Look on the left of this comment. It's the number of upvotes and it's called score. For comments without upvotes, it's score is 0 and is not displayed. –  Andrew T. Apr 10 at 2:09

@AndrewT. Actually it's NULL until it gets incremented for the first time. ;) –  animuson Apr 10 at 2:12
    
@animuson And it's not null anymore even though I un-upvoted it. :P –  hichris123 Apr 10 at 2:13
    
How to upvote the comment? –  Gerel tumen Apr 10 at 2:13
    
On the left, on rollover, you have a top arrow (click to upvote) and a flag (to flag this comment as spam, offensive or unconstructive). –  Fllo Apr 10 at 2:16
    
@Fllo: where's the spam option? –  Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 at 2:24
    
@Filo Invisible to low-reps. –  bjb568 Apr 10 at 2:26
    
@Qantas94Heavy the little flag below the arrow display a popup with options (as rude or offensive,not constructive,obsolete,too chatty and other). I think you can add a comment to say you find that as a "spam". –  Fllo Apr 10 at 2:31
    
@Fllo: I know there's a popup, just wondered what you meant by the "spam" option. :) –  Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 at 2:34
    
@Qantas94Heavy Oh sorry (I meant a comment actually) :) - however, it's not from me, the title of the flag on rollover it's "flag this comment as unconstructive, offensive, or spam" –  Fllo Apr 10 at 2:40

You can't upvote a comment because you can't upvote anything yet. Earn 15 reputation somewhere, look for a comment and have fun! –  Braiam Apr 10 at 3:35
    
@Qantas It's the same for every site. meta.stackoverflow.com/help/privileges –  bjb568 Apr 10 at 4:36
    
@bjb568: I thought it was when you were able to comment, my bad. –  Qantas 94 Heavy Apr 10 at 4:38

It is the number of upvotes (if any) that the comment got. Most comments don't get any, so you'd see nothing in that field for them.
