Default Finding lobster antenna???

My son dove on a good ledge on our last trip out, looked hard for some bugs but only found 5-6 antenna laying next to the ledge.

sign of lobster molting or already been worked by a diver?

Usually you will see the whole shell if it is a molt . Shouldn't be any divers molesting them because season is closed. Your son knows its closed I would hope.

Never seen a molt with just the antenna before, so probably the latter.

you are very unlikely to find multiple molts on a dive. Someone who sucks at caching lobster was there before you.

If the lobster are legal, first thing I do is break antenna, Makes them much easier to handle. Don't scratch your arms or get stuck in bag.
