Higgs particle and standard model Higgs particle difference?

  1. Jun 16, 2015 #1
    Hey physics enthusiasts,
    I have been reading and watching various videos, which talks about the possibility that the Higgs particle which was discovered by collisions in the large hadron collider(LHC) may not be the standard model Higgs particle. What does this mean? What is the difference between the standard model Higgs and the Higgs particle discovered recently? How can physicists prove if this is or is not the standard model Higgs particle? Please elaborate. And try to keep it simple I am just 14. :smile:
