How can I return result as my sample below in sql?  There will always be only on mismatch, but one or multiple possible(s).

Sample data - my current result
clientid  poss_mismatch customername
1            mismatch            bank of a
1            possible               bofa
1            possible               b of a
3            mismatch            Wells
3            possible               Wells Fargo
3            possible               WellsFargo
etc


New Result
Clientid   Col_Mismatch         Col_Possible     Customername
1                bank of a
1                                                possible              bofa    
1                                                possible              b of a  
3               Wells
3                                                possible               Wells Fargo
3                                                possible               WellsFargo

etc

Use the PIVOT clause, e.g.

SELECT * FROM yourTable
PIVOT ( MIN(CustomerName) FOR poss_mismatch IN (possible, mismatch)) P;

like this ?

although  your ordiginal order (of possibles) can't be guaranteed to be maintained...

select  clientid
   ,case when poss_mismatch='Mismatch' then customername
         else ' ' end as col_mismatch
   ,case when pos_mismatch='mismatch' then ' '
         else pos_mismatch end as col_possible
   ,case when pos_mismatch='mismatch' then ' '
         else customername end as Customername
from yourtable
order by 1,2 Desc,3,4

Use COALESCE():

SELECT Clientid,
  Customername ,
  COALESCE(possible, ''),
  COALESCE(mismatch, '')
FROM yourTable
PIVOT ( MIN(CustomerName) FOR poss_mismatch IN (possible, mismatch)) P;
