The technical name of that tool you have is a "pounder." It is called this because you pound with it: nails, pegs, chisels, screwdivers, thumbs, screws, whatever you want to pound.

To "hamm" is something very much else. I'd tell you what it is to hamm, but you're not old enough. Perhaps when you're older some nice woman will teach you. Otherwise you can talk to your parish priest, especially if you find your mind dwelling on it. He can forgive you and will recommend icy-cold showers and lots of basketball.
