Hello! I believe that see saw shape is one in which the central atom has 5 regions of electron density, 4 being bonds between the atoms and the 5th being the lone pair. For example, in the Lewis structure for TeCl(subscript 4), Te is the central atom and when all formal charges equal 0, Te has five regions of electron density, three single bonds, one double bond and one lone pair, thus it is see saw shape. Hope this helps!
