A famous conjecture is the Twin prime conjecture, which states that there are infinitely many "twin primes" - primes which are 2 apart (for example, 11 and 13, or 17 and 19, are twin primes)

There is no logical conjecture that can be made for what could be an irregular polygon with an unknown number of sides. Of course, you could always conjecture anything. For example, that they will taste of strawberries. A conjecture that, I guess, will be disproved quite easily.
