Liquid takes the shape of the container , thus doesn't have a regular shape. For instance, if it's placed in a jug, it'll take its shape.

However, its volume remains the same, unlike gas which spreads to fill in any container. This is because there are intermolecular forces between the molecules that prevents it from spreading out.
