In this paper, we introduce hesitant fuzzy ideals on ternary semigroups and define hesitant fuzzy left (resp. lateral, right)ideals on ternary semigroups. Here we define hesitant fuzzy point on ternary semigroups and prove some interesting results on them. We also characterize regular ternary semigroups in terms of hesitant fuzzy left, hesitant fuzzy lateral and hesitant fuzzy right ideals using hesitant fuzzy points.
