If you are growing indoors, yes topping your plant will be beneficial. A plant that has been topped allows more high quality, buds to form at the top of the plant than a plant that has not been topped and can also potentially increase the yield. It can also be easier to control the plant height of a topped plant. Even autoflowers benefit from topping as long as you do it very early, within the first 3 weeks.
If you are a first time grower and are hesitant to top your baby, fear not! It will not harm your plants and your grow will be better for it.
If you are growing outdoors, topping isn’t necessary unless you want to control the height as the sun is intense enough to saturate the canopy with light even if the plant isn’t level.
