This is a spare left when two or more pins remain standing, but with a gap between them. Spares are naturally a little harder to make (since you need to put the ball between two pins, or slide one pin over into anothe) and bowlers don't like to leave a split. It is common to draw a circle round the pin-count on the score sheet to indicate that it was a split.
A spare combination in which the head pin is down and the remaining pins have one or more intermediate pins down immediately ahead of or behind them. There are 459 possible split combinations.
