Can't think of the word or noun that describes this action... usually when a boy or guy makes a fist and rubs into another male buddy, usually affectionately. I swear there's a word for this but can't think of it.  Thanks!

Not sure what the grammatically correct pop culture term is for it but my teenage boys came up with the word "nudgee" or "faux punch." Maybe you will create a stir by coming up with your own term lol. Hope that helps.

Could the word you are looking for be "fisting?"

Knuckling?
Knuckling or knuckled sounds right to me, too.

Jodi with her two cents.

That said, I think readers will get the meaning if you describe it.

for example, something like:
bumped his fist in a warm gesture

Never heard of noogie - kindlepedia strikes again. Found it in my dictionary, but the Google chrome dictionary didn't like it and wants to change it into nookie/nooky - which is a word a DO know  ;D.

I think fist bump is the best suggestion.
