mmm I think you're right. Too many crossings in the middle, sticks should probably have to bend.

Well to be 100% sure the all touch each other, I can only make a 6 stick formation like this.

(I made the top two ones "transparent" in order to show that they all actually touch other, and yes they rest on top of the others).




EDIT - Scrap this.
If the sticks have the same length, no way the central one can fit there and let the formation actually work.

Maybe we can remove it, and we are left with a 5 stick solution.

There are still better way to do it. Yeah they're all the same length.

Well I got 7 with this.



One in the middle vertical. Pic's not to scale but you get the idea.

There might be more possible but this is the best I've got.
