where there is a pair of unshared electrons on F-O-N or where there is a hydrogen that is bonded to F-O-N

Nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine atoms with a lone pair are bonding sites (each lone pair is one bonding site). Hydrogen atoms attached to a nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine are also bonding sites.

I hope this helps!

Besides hydrogen atoms bonding to either nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine, those hydrogen atoms have to be in a polar bond with another electronegative atom. An example is H20 where the hydrogen in that molecule is in a polar bond with oxygen.
