It means holding the ball for longer then supposed too. Usually 3(three) or 5(five) seconds, depending on what the situation is and who is the umpire. Sometimes it is 5(five) seconds for primary school games, 3(three) seconds for normal games.

What is meant by ball on in snooker?

Technically, a ball is 'on' if it can be legally struck by the cue ball. However, the term is most often used to mean that a ball can be potted. For example, if the term was used in commentary e.g 'There are no reds on', this is unlikely to mean the player is snookered (as it technically should), rather that no reds are in potable positions.
