I am seeing some light green grass patches in my lawn growing little balls on top. I am wondering if its weed or some kind of grass. Need help. I don't know if I should keep it or kill it.

Based on the shape of the flowers, I'm betting on Kyllinga vs. Nutsedge. Either way, it's not something you want in your turf. I've never Kyllinga myself, but I'm sure someone can give you advice on how to eradicate it.

It is a sedge. Could be green kyllinga or something called globe sedge. Try Sedgehammer to get rid of it. Grass killers or other herbicides will not touch it.
