You can redefine the way algorithmicx's \Comment works using

\algrenewcommand\algorithmiccomment{\hfill #1}


According to this answer, the default behavior of \Comment is to insert \hfill $$\triangleright$$. The above redefines it to not render a symbol. You can alternatively use any other symbol.

When replacing the documentclass{tudeflt-report} with another documentclass, e.g. \documentclass{article}, the triangle is correctly rendered (instead of the box), so this might be an issue with the used documentclass.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{algorithm,algorithmicx,algpseudocode}

\algrenewcommand\algorithmiccomment{\hfill #1}
