@SBK52  below is example of rest api to create folder using Send HTTP request to SharePoint 




Uri: _api/Web/Folders/add('shared documents/flowfolder1/subfolder1')

here Shared Documents is url of library

flowfolder1 is parent folder - if parent folder does not exist then first create parent folder using the same rest api but URL as _api/Web/Folders/add('shared documents/flowfolder1')

subfolder1 is the new sub folder that will be created by this rest api
