Why are there some residual magnetic moment on the zigzag graphene nanoribbon passivated with H atom?

I am considering the relaxation for the following zigzag graphene nanoribbon. Here the boundary of the zigzag graphene(C: brown) nanoribbon has been passivated with one H atom. I have performed the ...
