This page from islamweb contains two versions of Dua' Al Kunout, you can read also that it is a Sunna not Fard, and your prayer won't be wrong if you forget it, or left it.
Dua' Al Kunout is:
It can be recited in Fajr Prayer after the Ruku' of the second Rek'a, but it is more preferred to be recited during Witr Prayer (After salat al Eisha'), also after the Ruku' of the last Reka'.
Qunut can be any dua you like to recite to Allah, you recite it after the second surah in the second rek'a.
It is mustahab(sunnah) and not fard.
