Does mou/mol/molle always go after the noun?
On the whole mou and molle will be after the noun when they mean soft ( the opposite of hard) -
un fromage mou = a soft cheese
le beurre est devenu mou =the butter has gone soft
un matelas mou = a soft mattress
un fromage à pâte molle = a soft paste cheese
une balle molle = a soft ball
Rarely 'mol' is used before a noun starting with a vowel and a mute -h :
Occasionally 'molle' will be used in front of the noun to mean 'weak'.
Il faisait preuve d'une molle repentance/ discretion = He showed a weak repentance/ discretion
