There is no penalty. Any touch by the kicking team is considered a "legal touch" as long as the football travels the entire ten yards, no matter if it hits the ground first or not.

What is the difference between a punt and kick-off?

A "punt" is when a team chooses to forfeit possession of the ball by kicking it downfield. It is a type of scrimmage kick, which means the ball is snapped from the line of scrimmage on a down play. A "kickoff" is when the ball is kicked to put it into play, either following a score or at the beginning of a half. This is a type of free kick, which does not take place on a scrimmage down. In order to legally punt, the ball must be dropped and then kicked before it touches the ground. To legally kickoff, the ball must be kicked off the ground before any players on the kicking team have moved beyond the line where the ball is placed.
