The squares are actually the flower buds that will become beautiful flowers and eventually the cotton bolls.  The squares are formed on the fruiting branches of the cotton plant. The other branches known as vegetative branches provide nutrients for the cotton plants.

The Fall 2009 Spin-Off magazine has a informative article about growing cotton by Phreadde and Dave Davis (pg.52-56).
