You want to try to work from left to right across this molecule. So we'll start with the top CH3. Then we'll say CH (the C in this is the start of the double bond). Then we'll put another CH. Finally, the remaining CH3.

Note: A double bond should still be indicated in the structural formula.

So, in summary:

CH3CH=CHCH3

or CH3-CH=CH-CH3

Obviously when writing this use the appropriate subscript numbers.
