Hi
You can really top your plant at any point after it has its first true set of 5 prong leaves you can also clone at this point.
You basically top plants to make them bush out instead of growing tall.
Most indoor strains wont need to be topped because they only grow 3-4ft in length anyway as a rule.
So it will depend alot on your strain and wether its indoor or outdoor.
But to answer your question you simply pinch off the very top part of your plant
Meaning \|/ is your plant to top you pinch out | that part so in the end it will look like this \ / instead of this \|/.

Yes your two top branches will then be the main top.
This wont stop the up growth only slow it down eventually it will begin growing upwards again you can top a few areas of the plant at a time if you wish but be careful not to prune to much it can do more harm than good.
Glad I could help

Tips:

-Make the cut mid-way between 2 branches.
-Use a clean razor blade.
-Cut at a 45-degree angle (straight across).
