Hi Jaypee and welcome to GoY, you want your sweetcorn to seed - that is what you will eat

If you are talking about the sprays on top of the stalk, those are the male flowers (tassels), which produce the pollen that dusts the silks that fertilizes the grains that fill out the ears that Jaypee eats! Definitely leave those on.
