I consider two magnets of smae pole strength and length.
If i bring either of similar poles of the magnet forcefully near and stick with a glue.

Is the combination a magnet with three poles?

Thank you for your help

The net magnetic flux through a closed surface around this setup would haft to zero .
I'm pretty sure when dealing with magnetism we always have di-poles.

Sadly no.

The poles of a magnet are not at the ends. They are some distance inside the metal.

If you stick the magnets together you still have four poles - one at each end and two close together near the join.
