This is a commonly used fold in origami, generally used to form heads or tails of origami animals.
If you've folded the origami crane, you've made an inside reverse fold before.
Basically, make a mountain fold at an angle on each side of the paper. Once you've made the 2 mountain folds, you can push down the tip so that the tip now resides between those 2 mountain folds.
