I'm getting myself confused when to use 来る and 来ます. Does anyone know a section of the site that can go into more detail or explain it to me?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

「来ます」 is the polite form of 「来る」and 「来る」is the dictionary form of 「来ます」.

...です/~ます forms, add politeness, and are used in polite situations: at work, in public, speaking with strangers, and talking to people who are older or of higher social standing than you.

 When speaking with family and close friends, that politeness is unnecessary. In addition to being unnecessary, speaking with excessive politeness can be distant and cold. Why speak to your best friend with the same politeness you would give a stranger? Politeness implies distance, and putting that distance between yourself and a friend by using polite language can be off-putting. Being able to judge the appropriate politeness level for a conversation is very important.
