I am taking a 2 by 2 size table. After you, input column and row click on ‘Create Table’. From the block settings toggle ‘Header Section.’  Now you will be able to add header to your table. 

By default, column alignment is left, but you can change it from the top menu. WordPress will automatically adjust column size by measuring words in the text. This may look a bit odd, therefore it is suggested to use ‘Fixed width table cells’. 

There are also other customization options, use them as you need. 

With the table block of WordPress, you can create a basic comparison table. If you want to create an advanced comparison table then it is suggested that you use WP Table Builder Plugin
