    Re: Tom was sitting in the front seat of his car. His mobile fell down he bent over

    There is either a word or a full stop missing between "down" and "he".
    There is a comma missing after "over".
    He didn't "pick it". He "picked it up".
    His mobile didn't "fall down". It "fell on the floor" or "fell off his lap" or something similar. Also, he didn't "get up" after bending down. That only works if he had been standing. He "sat up".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think you could use a semicolon after fell down.
