Roof ridge vs. side vents

Q. What are the pros and cons re: roof ridge vs. side vents on a home? I have a condo which has side vents at the top of the condo’s two side peaks and there are small vents under the outside roof under-hang. The roof has just been shingled and a ridge vent put along the peak of the roof, but there has been a lot of disagreement as to whether to block the two side vents on the peak of the condo or leave all the vents alone.
