That is called a tactile switch. I've replaced hundreds if not a thousand in car radios. There are many different sizes and different thicknesses. Get them from Mouser electronics. I have drawers of different sizes. Order one or two of several different switches. They're only pennies and Mouser has no minimum order.

In the Northern half of NJ there are two electronic retailers that carry them. Both are approx 1/2 hour from my house but worth the trip in a pinch. Look around and see if you have one near you.
