As far as I know you need at least 50 reputation to posts comments on SE. Is it true for commenting your own questions? I thought it was, until I saw a comment to a new user's question:

ask us here in the comments (use @ to ping someone) if you need more guidance

The user had 1 reputation — they presumably couldn't post comments, so now I'm not sure.

Users can always comment on their own questions and answers regardless of reputation, see the end note of this meta.SE post.
