I can't believe I missed this posts. I have one ear that has an extra hole next to my stretched piercing. Like Dixie Wrecked said, I never had an issue with it. It's still there and I can still put a paper clip through it if I want to, but at 1/2" plugs, the retaining lip covers the second hole.
I thought about using something to make an abrasion on the front and back of the second hole to close it up, but my better judgement told me "If it ain't broke, dont fix it".
