Linux Files and Folders distinction

on the screenshot below, I noticed Folders have different colors, I am not sure what 's the reason:
The blue and light blue are folders.
the ones with .extension are files, they are either green or just plain white on black

I was just wondering if there is any Rules about  that .

Thank you
