"cd $HOME" or simple "cd" or "cd ~" will take you to the home directory of the user. There could be a file named ".profile" in the home directory. "ls -l .profile" will help you to check this. If you want to edit .profile file, you can use "vi" editor. For more information about "vi" you can see the manual pages. (man vi)
