square pyramidal. With less than 90 degree bond angles.

Every molecule with this formula will be some variation of square pyramidal. The bond angles of square pyramidal molecules are typically <90 degrees due to the fact that there is a lone pair of electrons that have the greatest repulsive force.

The one lone pair makes it square pyramidal.
