You need to expand the "What is reputation?" section to see the information about 50 rep points being needed to comment on other people's posts. I believe if you use then that section will be expanded automatically. – Trott Nov 23 '11 at 3:25

See the SO FAQ. You need a reputation of 50 or more to leave comments on others questions and answers. Keep plugging away, it will surely come.

That page indicates that you need 50 reputation points to be able to comment on other people's posts.
