Suppose I make two citations at the same place

\cite{ref1}, \cite{ref2}

It would appear as

[1], [2]

Sometimes I see a reference like

[1, 2]

How is that done in TeX? Also, when should I use one over the other?

Multiple citations at the same place can be achieved with

\cite{ref1,ref2,...}

Some bibliographic styles (ieee for example) turn multiple citations, i.e., [1,2] into [1], [2]. So, for the second part, it is a matter of the style used and customs.
