How do you find out if there are more neutrons then protons in an atom ?
It seems like there’s always less neutrons ?

Mass number - atomic number = neutron number
Not necessarily more neutrons than protons, if you consider Hydrogen which has a mass number of 2 and atomic number of 1, 2-1 = 1 = number of neutrons = atomic number = number of protons (and electrons, although irrelevant to your question).

Most atoms have more neutrons than protons. Having fewer is rather rare.
