This question already has an answer here:

I am a beginner photographer who owns a Canon 700D (upgraded over my 1200D), planning to learn flash photography. Honestly, I am not a fan of using flash till now, but it seems for indoor shooting, flash is kind of necessary in low light. Can someone explain to me what I should be looking at when buying a flash? As a beginner I did some research and found that Yongnuo has some pretty budget-friendly flashes on the market. But I'm not sure what features to look for.

My primary requirements are portraits and indoor functions photography.

To start with, you need to understand is it going to be a fully manual flash or TTL (through-the-lens (TTL) metering) flash.
