    Leaves look like some kind of Amaranth, but wait for flowers to confirm it.

According to my favorite plant indentification app Plantnet, your plant is with 42% probability Amaranthus spinosus which is in line with what the comments suggest.

It will flower in mid-summer, depending how warm it is in your location, see e.g. gardenersnet.com:

Amaranth will grow tall, 1-2 feet. They will produce of blooms on strong, straight stems. Flowers are long lasting, and will bloom from mid summer until frost.

Although amaranth is annual, some may reseed themselves and produce new plants the following year.

  • I updated my question and my two amaranth plants (or not sure what plant it is) got buds and got really big!
