As other users told 折る is a transitive verb that requires an objective such as 折り紙を折る - do an origami. 折れる is an intransitive verb, like 箸が折れる chopsticks snap. It requires a subjective. 折る、折れる aren't necessarily referring to physical objects like a branch, tree, bones, and a window glass. It can be used for abstract objects, for examples: 骨を折る - make an ...
