Yo como (I eat)
Tú comes (You, familiar, eat)
Él/ella/usted come (he/she/you, formal, eat)
Nosotros comemos (we eat)
Ellos/ellas/ustedes comen (they/you all eat)

Here are a couple of videos from SpanishDict.com that explain the conjugation of regular verbs. You can find video lessons, flash cards, matching quizzes, grammar sheets, a forum, and more on SpanishDict.com. It is kind of confusing because they keep pushing you toward Fluencia, their product for sale, but if you go to spanishdict.com/learn/courses and create an account you can get to all the old free stuff. But here are the videos alone, hosted on youtube.

Comer is an '-er' ending verb meaning to eat. Como is the (yo) 'I' ending for the present tense meaning 'I eat'. Comes is the single person informal (tu) 'you' ending for the present tense meaning 'you eat'. All spanish verbs have different endings for I, you (informal), he/she/you (formal)/it, we, you plural (informal)and lastly, they and you 'all' (formal). Informal you in Spanish means you know the person (family member or friend) while formal you means a person you don't know very well, or is older than you, or a person that deserves respect, as a teacher would. So with all this, Como is used when you are speaking of yourself. Como carne. 'I eat meat.' Comes is used when you are speaking about or to a person you know. Comes carne. 'You eat meat.'

Hope this helps. It gets easier!

I forgot to add that the verb conjugation, 'coma,' is the command form you use when you are telling someone to eat, as in (you) Eat. Coma ahora means Eat now!
