    It's correct, Cutemina. Let's imagine this, below, is the context/situation.

    A: He not happy with the situation at work. He's probably going to quit.

    B: He is disappointed, and well he may [quit].



    Also, If this sentence is correct, what's the difference between 'he may well and well he may.

    There's not a lot of difference, save maybe for this collocation being more formal/unusual.

    please help me.
