The carbon is the central atom (as given) and the CH2's come off the sides of carbon with each C atom having 2 Hydrogens attached to it. There are 24 valence electrons total so I started out by simply drawing it out with single bonds and then I made the central Carbon and another random carbon a double bond and put lone pairs on the other carbons that don't have the double bond. And for the resonance structure, we just continue switching the double bond around the other carbon atoms. It's hard to explain in words so I hope that at least makes some sense.
