How do comments work?

Most of the time I don't get a comment button on people's questions and answers. Is there a reason? Or am I doing something wrong ?

You need 50 points to comment other people's posts.

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 stackoverflow.com/faq#reputation 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.

See http://stackoverflow.com/privileges/comment:

Please note that you can always comment on your own posts, and any part of your questions. However, commenting on other people's posts is a privilege.

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

The relevant part of the SO FAQ is at http://stackoverflow.com/faq#reputation.
