These shapes are known as stars. You can play with the star point ratio.

\documentclass[tikz,border=3.14mm]{standalone}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes.geometric}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\node[draw,star,star points=8]{hello};
\node[draw,star,star points=8,star point ratio=1.25] at (3,0) {hello};
\node[draw,star,star points=8,star point ratio=0.8] at (6,0) {hello};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}
