Hi,

I have a mysql table i want to to display in a table format on a webpage using php.. One field is a comment field and can have up to 500 chars. What I want is to be able to click on that field (a link to the comments)then display it somehow.

Should I click on comment and the comments appear on a seperate page or in a popup window or what is a good way?

It's up to you. That's a design issue.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

well what can I do with my design, is there examples somewhere to see what looks best, or will I just have to do it?

We can't tell you what "looks best." That's up to you.  Everybody has their own personal tastes.  I'm not trying to be difficult; we're just not mind readers, nor do we have the same tastes.  Just sit down and consider what you "need" your script to do, and get that done, and then build to make it do what you "want" it to do.

I realize this argument but i asked for opinions. It is wiser to ask people who have done this before instead of waisting time with things you may not be aware of.

That's why i come here, so no offence.

No offense meant (by me), no offense taken (from you). 

Perhaps if you could provide a link to your work-in-progress then people might offer some opinions/critique the situation. 

If you provide a link then I will move this to the website critiques forum.
