The hexagon is usually formed when an expanding circle meets resistance from all sides (or, like at Saturn's north pole, the surroundings are pushing
on the circle in the middle). It could be that, as an asteroid impacted the Moon to create that crater, the lunar rock was pushed outwards due to the
force of the impact, and thus created this hexagonal shape due to the resistance of the surrounding rock.
There are many other craters on the Moon with vaguely hexagonal shape.
