Photos 1&2: are those seed pods or flower buds?
They don't look like the typical flower buds like the one in photo 3.

They are what is left after the spent flower falls off. If the flower got pollinated it will turn into a seed pod.

Thank you. Are you saying that if the flower got pollinated the flower will turn into a seed pod?

That part of the flower that is still on the plant is where the seed pod will develop if the flower got pollinated.

The picture in this thread has a developing seed pot to illustrate:
