For eg: I have less/little pens/pen.
What should come?
As far as i know "I have less pen"... Is right? But pen is countable(contradicting your statement)
But i don't know the rules.. Please correct me if am wrong.

The little is limited or below average in number or quantity or magnitude or extent. The less is a quantifier meaning not as great in amount or degree.
