I don’t believe you have to write the subscript of one. If you think about the chemical formula of a molecule, like H2O, you only write the subscript on the element that has multiple atoms present (Hydrogen), while you do not write the 1 for the subscript on the oxygen. You can apply this thinking to the VSEPR formulas. Thus, I believe writing the subscript is unnecessary and simply repeats what we already know, but if it is helpful for you, I don’t think it’ll do any harm.
