Installing pendant lighting


I am installing some pendant lighting in my kitchen. I have put up 2 with no issue. I have one more light to install but I am not sure how or what kind of ceiling box to use.

I made the hole in my drywall only to find a stud at one end of my hole and a long piece of metal on the side of my hole. The cut in boxes I were using now will only hold on one side.

I do not know what to do next. Please help

Got a picture?
Any access from above?
Do you not have a stud finder?
A stud is in a wall, a rafter would be in the ceiling, which is it?
No one here can see what type boxes your trying to install.
