comment Is $\{x\}$ a neighbourhood of $x$?
That depend on our topology. I think you're studying metric spaces only. If you don't know general topology it doesn't matter. Actually by a topology we mean we first set the open sets. I mean we just define that these are the open sets and do maths on that. So you can define a topology on a set in which one particular singleton set is open another one is not open, like that.. So {a} is open in your topology iff {a} is a neighborhood of a. As other people have already mentioned, there is a topology called discrete topo. in which all singleton sets are open. => {x} is a nbd of x for all x..!:)

comment Is $\{x\}$ a neighbourhood of $x$?
Any open set containing our point 'x' is a neighborhood of x. Don't confuse with the real life meaning of 'neighborhoods'. It has no connection with saying that points in a neighborhood of x are closer to x or things like that. Even the whole space itself is a neighborhood of any point!
