If I Click on Branch should I see a branch in the graph?

Hi all, Fairly new to the git experience, but I am a bit confuzed .. if I click branch and create a branch and make changes and commit them and push them then merge them back to the master why does the graph section not show the branches and merges when I have Show All branches selected.. am I missing something very basic?

If you create one branch from master then makes some commits to your new branch and if master is not moving (no more commits) and you  do not create a second branch from master then your Git history is linear. You will only see branches in the graph if you have, for want of a better word, parallel commits, e.g. you make 2 branches from master at the same point and then make a commit onto each branch.

Sorry that might not be the greatest explanation., but I hope it makes sense.
