    Wormhole exist at sub-atomic level? Right?

    Never observed and no theoretical basis.

    Nerver observed doesn't mean it doesn't exist. There was theoretical basis abot this.

    We don't know for certain. Microscopic wormholes are consistent with some models ( theoretically speaking ), but no empirical evidence of their existence has been found.

    Wormhole should exist for transferring information between entangled particles.
    Also Quantum tunneling is bit like a passing through a wormhole.

    No one knows for certain. maybe someone will come up with a better explanation in the future.

    It quite wrong to assert that something does not exist merely because they've never been observed. There's was a time when each of the particles we know exists to day never existed. There was a time when dark matter and dark energy was never existed too.

    It's also wrong to assert that there's no theoretical basis for them either. See Wormhole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Lorentzian traversable wormholes would allow travel in both directions from one part of the universe to another part of that same universe very quickly or would allow travel from one universe to another. The possibility of traversable wormholes in general relativity was first demonstrated by Kip Thorne and his graduate student Mike Morris in a 1988 paper. For this reason, the type of traversable wormhole they proposed, held open by a spherical shell of exotic matter, is referred to as a Morris–Thorne wormhole. Later, other types of traversable wormholes were discovered as allowable solutions to the equations of general relativity, including a variety analyzed in a 1989 paper by Matt Visser, in which a path through the wormhole can be made where the traversing path does not pass through a region of exotic matter.

    Maybe after the Large Hadron Collider restarted at a higher energy level in 2015, it will reveal the secrets of subatomic level wormhole. An edition of BBC Knowledge Asia Edition reported the effort of finding microscopic black hole at quantum level after the restart in 2015. So, I would argue that finding a quantum black hole first is better instead of going straight challenging the physics of worm hole. (Maybe we need a higher energy level?)

    It's next to impossible to create a wormhole with the LHC because one requires exotic matter to create one. See

    Exotic matter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Wormhole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Traversable wormholes require negative energy density.
