    Appears to be a handlebar mount for a handlebar bag or possibly a basket. It'll come off in 30 seconds.

    I'd also take a closer look at the handlebar. There's enough rust on there to cause me to worry. My concern would be the handlebar actually breaking during a ride in the near future. Bars are hollow, and it doesn't take long for rust to make this a reality. Have your dad or someone that knows bikes check it out thoroughly.
