i know terrakion is best, but I'm just curious who is better.

this sounds opinionated
Competitive or in-game? The desc makes it sound Competitive.
If competitive, what format?
This is not opinionated. There are plenty of way to assess these Pokemon objectively.

Cobalion is the better of the two. This is due almost exclusively to its better typing. The Steel type is a much better type defensively than the Grass type. It is also more offensively relevant on a Fighting type Pokemon, providing Cobalion with a hard hitting STAB move that is super effective against Fairy types. Steel/Fighting also just has better coverage than Grass/Fighting. Cobalion also has access to Stealth Rock and Volt Switch, two wonderful moves that are always handy to have.
