     The ammonia molecule has a trigonal pyramidal shape with the three hydrogen atoms and an unshared pair of electrons attached to the nitrogen atom.

    The lone electron pairs exerts a little extra repulsion on the three bonding hydrogen atoms to create a slight compression to the tetrahedral 107 bond angle.
