    You can do several things. First off, there is padding added to the top and bottom of your form, which is just blank space. To remove it, you need to inject some custom CSS to the bottom of custom CSS field of your form:

    Further, I would advise you to use an actual Address field for collecting addresses, rather then multiple separate fields. You can find it under the Quick Tools on the left of the Form Builder.

    Finally, to make some of your questions go to the same line, you can use Field Positioning. You can take a look at our second guide for even more ways on How to Position Fields in JotForm.
