i want to make flower petals compressed INSIDE a Sphere. just like this image. i just want the petals inside , not the sphere part nor the upper part The Result a want

Here is an option with a zero-gravity Cloth simulation.

First, lazy modeling of these flower petals inside:

  • create a plane and subdivide it a few times. That's the flower petal instance.
  • create a tiny sphere and add 20 hair particles.
  • set the Particle Settings > Render > Render As to Object and Particle Settings > Render > Instance Object to the plane.

Now create one single object from this and make it cloth:

  • convert the particles to a mesh (modifier tab).
  • join all flower petals to one mesh object (select all, Ctrl+J)
  • add a Cloth modifier
  • turn off Gravity. It's in Cloth Settings > Field Weights.
  • turn on Self Collision.

Then model an oversized cherry (Icoshphere, a little editing & Subdivision Surface modifier).

  • add a Collision and a Soldify modifier to it.

Last but not least, make a short shrink animation by keyframing the scale value of the cherry (I in Object mode). Run the simulation. If you're happy with the result apply the Cloth modifier.
