You have rye grass. Very common, and very good grass.

Common good grasses are Perennial/or Annual Rye Grass, Fescue, and Kentucky Blue.

Thanks for the reply.
I actually meant the ones that have what looks like seed on the tip of the blade.
Is that still rye?

Those don't just look like seeds, they are seeds!

That is grass that has gone to seed.

If it just in a small area, and not the rest of your lawn it is possible that a different grass variety that seeds at a lower height might have been used at some point to patch an area.

A fun fact is that Kentucky Blue grass gets its name from the fact that when it grows to between two and three feet, it will have blue flowers heads.

The neighbor said it might be annual bluegrass and is considered weed grass like crabgrass, and I should have it gone.
I know my grass has more than 2 different type of grass, previous owner didn't take good care of it, and I'm trying hard to have a decent lawn.
I live in Indiana if that makes any difference.

In Indiana:

Mow high, mow often.
Aerate once a year.
Add some compost in the fall, if you can (especially if you live in an area with clay soil)
Have the local Purdue extension test your soil Ph, and then treat it with whatever they recommend in order to get your Ph in range.

I've you've got a huge problem with the annuals, you can hit them with a pre-emergent herbicide in the spring. Since they're already "up" for the year, forget about them for now and focus on doing the above to get the rest of your yard healthy. If you've got strong perennial grass, the annuals don't stand much of a chance in the spring when they try to come up.

PS, fellow Hoosier here, from Columbus. Currently living in Beijing, China. I live in an apartment, so I don't have any grass to care for. But I've got 1.6 acres waiting for me when I go back home in 2 years.
