In my closet I have shelves where I put my clothes but i have one with a door and a lock but its not like the drawers in my desk that I pull them out, its just a little door that opens and closes. How would that be called? And is it called “shelves” where you put your clothes?

I would call that a cupboard. That's maybe quite broad; you could qualify by describing it like you've done. But I can't think of any word specifically referring to what you describe.

  • In American English, we only use cupboard for the kitchen cupboard.

I think what you're talking about in American English most likely would be just called a compartment with a door. And yes, those things that you put your clothes on are called shelves.

I would call it a cabinet probably.
