The center is a geometric center, the center of mass is where the mass is balanced. Think about your pencil or pen, usually the eraser and that metal on the end is a little bit heavier, so if you want to balance it you need to have your finger slightly towards it and not in the geometric center, hence its center of mass is where its balanced.
