|Formation of Miniature Black Holes
Miniature black holes, primordial black holes, may have formed in the early Universe through compressing of at least:
10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1.
That's why it is necessary to pack so many protons together in order to form a mini black hole, so that the weak gravitational force can over power the strong repulsion force.
At this stage in time for our Universe, there is no physical way to pack 1036 protons together so that a miniature black hole could form. A mini black hole could only form in chaotic situations during the microseconds following the Big Bang when the Universe was far denser than a neutron star and the protons were packed close together.
Although possible, the formation of mini black holes is considered very unlikely.
