char *mychar;
char a = '1';
char b = '2';
char c = '3';
char d = '4';
I want to put a,b,c and d in the mychar. So, mychar should be equal "1234". I don't want it like
char *mychar="1234";
I want somehow put these 4 chars seperatly.
Thats not my homework :)

Try this:
#include <stdio.h>

     char *mychar;
     char a='a';
     char b='b';
     char c='c';
     char d='d';

     mychar=(char *)malloc((4+1)*sizeof(char));
     sprintf(mychar,"%c%c%c%c",a,b,c,d);
     printf("MyChar is %s\n",mychar);

That accepted answer actually has a bug in which the string is not properly ended with a NULL terminator
