Ralph is the first to spot the conch shell covered in the sand, but it is Piggy who suggest it be used as a communication device.

Piggy finds the conch shell, and as he is later Ralph's right-hand man, it makes sense that he is the one to establish the idea of order on the island by using the conch as a way to keep the peace at meetings.

It is Piggy who finds the conch shell and immediately shows it to Ralph.
