I want to select an area that has one straight edge.

One side is straight and the other part I can delete.

Not sure I understand - is it like you want to cut off someone's nose with
the straight line being where their nose used to be attached? I'd use the
free hand (lasso) tool to select the part of the image you want - so you
have a rough outline of the nose (plus some cheek), then select the
rectangle select tool and hold CTRL (to subtract the selection) along the
straight edge.

There is probably a better way to do this, but the above is my first guess
at a way. Also, if you straight selection is not vertical or horizontal, I
suppose you could rotate the image/layer first, then rotate it back.

Checking out paths is probably another option.
