Are my concrete forms holding the concrete?

Hi all!

My first concrete build on a small root cellar, the concrete wall is 8" thick 48" tall, the board is 5/8 OSB ...looking at the 8 foot wide wall on top of the footing you see 2 x 4 vertical with two 3/8" bolts holding the form together.

Question

Will I need another bolt in the middle of the 2x4?

You see a slight gap on bottom of footing around 1/4" in some places, will this be OK or do I need to cover up?

I still need to put brasses on to prevent from tilting or shifting.....any other recommendation appreciated!
