Taking an origami sheet

Make a Triangle Fold

First of all, fold the paper from one corner to other as shown below in the image and further make a proper crease on it. 

 Create a Centre Fold Following the Crease

After the first fold, open the paper and here you can see a centre line hence following the same fold the sides of the paper and make a proper crease on it.

Fold the Paper from the Another Side

So now you have to again open the folds and see three proper creases on the paper. Now turn the paper around and fold the paper from the sides as above following the centre crease as shown below.

Fold the paper from the Center

Now open all the folds and you can see a good number of creases all over the paper. If you see carefully then you will find a cross-crease at the sides of the paper where I am holding it.

However, if you have to hold that part similarly and fold the paper as shown below in the image. and then make a proper crease on it.

Join Both Sides of the Paper

Further, you have to join the paper by folding it from the centre. Once you will fold it from the centre then you can see small fold will pop out as you can also see here in the image below.

Flip the Paper to Create First fold of Head of Dolphin

First of all, flip the paper and then fold one part of the paper till the centre line. Further, fold only the tip of the paper a bit towards the back and following the same fold the paper again towards the front. 

If you have folded properly then you see it look like some bird beak or so.

Fold the Sides of the Paper

Now you have to fold the sides carefully. You can see very small sides are pooping out so you have to fold it inward and make a proper crease.

Create a Center Fold

Further, fold the paper from the centre slowly and make a proper crease on it. 

 Create a Fins of a Dolphin

After folding it from the centre you can see two small fins are popping out. First of all, take one side of the fin and put your thumb inside after that open the fold wider and then flatten it as you can see in the image below.

Similarly does it for the other side of the paper.
