Please always upload with leaves to enable identification up to species level. The first is perhaps Stellaria media, second possibly Cerastium

Not able to count number of styles but from leaves it looks like Myosoton aquaticum (syn: Stellaria aquatica) which differs from Stellaria in having 5 styles.
Stellaria graminea has much narrower almost grass-like leaves

But you should not mix different species in the same thread. Send then in separate posts with different subject line.

On further consideration, it appears close to Cerastium holosteoides as per POWO
