The LHCb collaboration has recently reported evidence of two pentaquark states [1]. We have constructed a classification scheme for pentaquark states and tried to describe them as compact objects [2]. The hidden-charm pentaquark states have been also described as meson-baryon molecules with coupled channels for D¯(∗)Λc
and D¯(∗)Σ(∗)c [3] and recently, for the first time, we have discussed the interplay between compact and molecular components [4]. Important predictions are also given for bottom meson-baryon molecules coupled with five-quark states [3].
