Today I put up two towel bars to hang towels on. And bummer! I put it crooked. My question is, if I were to drill a hole a half inch below the first hole (using a 3/16" drill bit) will it be too close to the first hole and might they crumble into each other?

I don't know what exact type of wall this is. The drill went through it real smoothly without any ear-splitting noise. It was like particle board or something, and the outer coating seems plasticky.

What do you think is too close to drill holes together that they might cause cracks or something? Would it stabilize it to put some liquid wood stuff into the first hole and let it dry?

Do you think just leave it? (Eventually when when selling this place it will probably need to be removed or corrected.) Or do you think I should move all of them a few inches away from the original holes? But if I fill them in and paint over them that will probably show.

Thanks in advance.

Redrill both holes. Move up or down as much as possible without uncovering the present holes. THIS TIME use a level to get it right.
No more chances,this is it! If going down, guage from the higest hole, if going up, guage from the lower hole.

Thanks, it worked, and I used a level. The second pair of holes were about 3/4" away from the first ones.
