How do I check if the mob is really thwere then?

Sorry for the wierd questions but I cant really understand this..

I thought a pointer contained a integer refering to what it is pointing on,

when u check the pointer for = NULL it went to the memory area pointed to

and checked if that area was NULL, so If the area is a mob and I clear the

mob wouldnt that area be NULL?

Hope Im making sence :)
