The following example shows an SVG which contains a <polyline> with five coordinate pairs. A new SVGPoint is created, and inserted before the point at index 2.

<svg id="svg" viewBox="-10 -10 120 120" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <polyline id="example" stroke="black" fill="none"
   points="50,0 21,90 98,35 2,35 79,90"/>
let example = document.getElementById("example");
let svgpoint = document.getElementById("svg").createSVGPoint();
svgpoint.y = 10;
svgpoint.x = 10;
console.log(example.points.insertItemBefore(svgpoint,2));
