What should be ideal phrase for it? "Comment" or "Reply" ?

There is no "ideal phrase" for "it". They are both different terms that mean different things.

Comment

a note explaining, illustrating, or criticizing the meaning of a writing Comments on the passage were printed in the margin.

an observation or remark expressing an opinion or attitude critical comments constructive comments

a judgment expressed indirectly sees the film as a comment on modern values

Reply

say something in response to something someone has said.

a verbal or written answer.

The explanation of the word that fits the use-case of your application better will be the "ideal".

  • I would add here that it also depends on what you want to do beyond the surface layer - Facebook also allows "Replies" to "Comments" – Andrew Martin Jun 6 '18 at 14:26
