The head portion specifically

So I'm a beginner at blender, and I'm having a hell of a time trying to create the flat head portion. I have one created, but it's a broken mesh. I can't insert loop cuts and all that business when trying to flesh out the details. Anyone have any tips or methods to do this correctly?

Thank you!
