Here is my take on this...first of all your question and forgive me if I sound a tad blunt is far too vague. Best for what? midi? recording?automation?tracking? user friendliness...there are far too many variables for us to tell you what the "better" of the two DAWS and at the end of the day our assessments will be entirely subjective.
Additionally threads like these have been discussed, re - discussed and then discussed after that and after that and after that. Point is the search bar is your friend and you will find a significant amount of information by looking something like this up because as I said before it has been discussed long past the extent of flogging a dead horse.
Now to the meat of the matter. In my opinion I honestly think that for a beginner FL Studio is more conducive to learning than Ableton. I think that if you were dropped in a room with no instructions but to learn these DAWS and no help from anyone that you would have a significantly easier time picking up FL. Everything is pretty straight forward, you can practically learn the basics in a few hours on your own by just pressing buttons and a little common sense. As for ableton I think the learning curve is a little bit more difficult. I have used both for a bit and I had a much more difficult time trying to learn ableton on my own. At this point I don't think it would be necessary to be thinking about achieving professional results. That will come over time with hard work and dedication, sorry to sound a bit cliche. If later on you do decide that you want more out of your DAW because of limitations that you are having then by all means switch DAWS, even rewire them to achieve maximum results. But at no point should you make a decision to use a tool someone else is using just because they are a big name. You will find more now than ever that great music is being made on every platform imaginable and that more of your thought processes will be directed towards making something sound innovative and different as opposed to buying more and more gear to fill a void that shouldn't be filled with purchases. If you cannot create music because of the DAW you are using then it is time to stop and re-evaluate your abilities.
Lastly, demo demo demo. We won't be making the music for you...so we cannot tell you what is better for you. Sit down and think what exactly it is that you want to do within the digital realm and then do some research because despite what we tell you the better or best DAW may be...it will entirely be subjective and only you can make a decision as to what is better for you. Most of it not all DAWS require nothing but a simple download to demo, get a feel of the program...don't like it? delete it and download a new demo.
Now after that lengthy dissertation if you have say a particular facet to your musical ability that you wish to exploit through your DAW say your ability to play piano or any musical instrument then by all means feel free to ask more questions so that we can help make your decision easier.
