H only has 1 bond and always you have formal charge of 0 for this case.

What about when making chemical formulas for compounds. Is formal charge different from expected charges?
I think it is because the formal charge will always be zero since there is one valence electron and when there is a single bond with another atom, the hydrogen formal charge becomes zero because hydrogen only needs two electrons to be stable.
