It's called a "Spudger" and you can buy a set from the guys at the ifixit web site. LINK

BTW, you don't need a Spudger to open an iPod if you're careful. I just serviced an older iPod Mini without using one. What I did was use an Exacto razor blade to gently break through the seal around the top and bottom of the iPod. Then use a small screwdriver to wedge around and push the top off. Same with the bottom. Top and bottom have a sticky but removable glue as a seal to keep them in place.

Anyway, just follow the guides on the ifixit site and good luck with the repair.

Regards.
