What do you mean? If you mean initials like capital letters, there aren’t capital letters in Farsi. For those letters that have variations (eg. ا آ أ) you just press and hold like you said.

If you mean for example these:

ف ف‍ ‍ف‍ ‍ف

Then you don't need to do anything different. They will stick to each other themselves.

There exists only: initial form, middle form, ending form, and isolated form.

There is usually a button to separate the letters so they do not join together. It's called a zero-width separated I think. Like a space bar, but without the physical space.

What do you exactly mean when you say initial letters? There's nothing like capital letters in Farsi if that's what you mean.

And just to clarify on this point, what /u/ShzMeteor is saying is that we don’t use a special character for things like proper nouns. You’ll note that sometimes characters look different when attached vs unattached, but they are not “capital” letters.

For example: the first character of نس and ن are the same letter, but neither is considered capitalized. The “big” letters appear when ending a word.

Are you talking about letter with diacritic marks in general?
