|Can you identify this from my canna lily? Should I prune these or leave them there? Should they bloom?

Those would be the seed pods

| They are seed pods. Once a Canna stem has bloomed, that same stem will not bloom again so I usually cut back the whole stem right to the ground, and that stimulates the plant to put up new stems and more flowers.
If you want to let the seed pods stay on and mature to produce seeds, you need to wait until the pods dry out and are brown and crisp. This early in the season, I'd not be inclined to do that because the plant has the whole summer to make more seeds for you. Now is time for flowering.
Cannas love heat and sun, and need lots of water and fertilizer. Enjoy your plant!
