IOS swift how can I create a custom first cell for a Tableview

I am using swift 3 and I have a custom TableView however I am trying to make the first row completely different from all the others . It's like the Facebook app where the first row has a TextBox that states "What's on your mind ? " and the rest of the tableView is the same . My custom TableView looks like this, I now want to put a TextView on the first TableView row, how can I go about doing that? as I am new to IOS development this is my code

func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {
let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: "HomePageTVC", for: indexPath) as! HomePageTVC


cell.post.text = Posts[indexPath.row]
cell.fullname.setTitle(FullName[indexPath.row],for: UIControlState.normal)
cell.fullname.tag = indexPath.row
cell.fullname.addTarget(self, action: #selector(HomePageC.Fullname_Click(sender:)), for: .touchUpInside)
cell.comments.setTitle(Comments[indexPath.row],for: UIControlState.normal)
cell.comments.tag = indexPath.row
cell.votes.setTitle(Votes[indexPath.row],for: UIControlState.normal)
cell.votes.tag = indexPath.row
cell.time.text = Times[indexPath.row]
cell.shares.setTitle(Shares[indexPath.row],for: UIControlState.normal)
cell.shares.tag = indexPath.row
cell.location.text = Locations[indexPath.row]
cell.vote_status.text = VoteStatus[indexPath.row]




return cell
}

You can create a table view header which will be at the top of the section and can be different from the custom reuseable cells you call in your cellForRowAtIndexPath.
