A corn there is a discrete area of thickened skin (hyperkeratosis) known as a heloma and they can occur pretty much anywhere on the foot but are most of seen on the toes or ball of the foot.
Similar to a callous a corn is caused by excessive friction and pressure and this is normally due to the foot rubbing against the shoe.
