By default all Wordpres blog have open comments on all pages and posts. if you disabledthem you can enbale them again across the whole blog or individually on some pages and/or posts. This page > Settings > Discussion Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
We can also override the default settings and enable or disable comments on any post or page.
Just an added note unless we use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.
In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
