Vertebral column?: I am assuming you mean on the bony part, like an extra vertebrae? Yes, technically you can, although this is extremely rare. What is more common is the lack of "sacralization" or connection of a sacral vertebra that looks like an extra lumbar vertebrae. You can also have accessory, or one extra rib on each side in your low cervical spine.
