The spacing of the first expression includes extra space before the 5. I would like to have the same spacing as the second line.

HoldForm[4 .. 5]
HoldForm[a .. b]

Is there a way to suspend Mathematica's spacing, perhaps with a StyleBox?

the extra space you see is due to multiplication

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], 
 NumberMultiplier -> "\[NegativeThinSpace]"]
