If you are short, you'll need to get more planks. Don't take apart what you already installed, you might damage the installed planks.

Ah, yes, but is he talking about flooring or a countertop, or maybe a veneer on a piece of furniture? Thing is, there isn't enough info to be able to answer, hence, what is he talking about?

I'm sorry but my problem is with a laminate counter top, i need to re-laminate it but it has a piece of laminate missing the size of my hand,i am trying to avoid a dip from the missing section being visible when i lay the new laminate on top. I will appreciate any help you might have.

I would use Bondo - the body filler - to fill the hole. You want something that will be hard and stable. Bondo will allow you to fill and perfectly sand the area flush with the rest of the countertop.
