   XPath has a count() function.

   count(*) will return the number of child elements of the current node.

Or since you don't care how many children there are, just whether
there is a second or not you can do

<xsl:template match="xxx">
this code if xxx has less than two children

<xsl:template match="xxx[*[2]]">
this code if xxx has more than one child
