When to use curly braces and when not {}

I don't get it when we use curly braces and when not. I thought that if there is more than two lines of code we use them.

I thought its like that but last example of debug made me wrong :/

Braces are typically used to define a code block, which can contain any number of code lines. There are some places where a code block is optional, such as after an "if" when only one statement is being controlled.

But other places, such as when defining the body of a function, the braces are always required.
