I thought about asking what steps to make the patch in but John had refreshed my memory somewhat and I ended up being able to wing it.
No, don't flatten. Just hold the pointy end of the comma dolly about where you want the bend and kinda "swipe" blow with your slight crown body hammer. Just put the metal where you want it without flattening.
Just try it next time, and it'll come to you instantly seeing as you pound metal around already.
