Hi there.. I can understand your concern.. xiphoid process is end part of sternum..it usually is prominent in skinny people.. or if abdomen is drawn in it becomes prominent..it's normal.. nothing to worry.. don't keep pressing that part as it would become painful.. hope your distress is solved now.
