The rules for an onside kick are no different than for any other type of kickoff. On a kickoff, the kicking team can always take possession of the ball as long as it has traveled ten yards.

You might be confusing kickoffs with punts. On a punt, the kicking team can only down the ball unless the receiving team touches it first.
