Expert Answer:

Potential energy always define for a system , any system required at least two quantity either it can be carge or mass. So the question regarding potential energy of a charge is wrong, but yeah it will have some potential and the magnitude of potential is directly propotional to magnitude of charge.
For the given condition if you want to the change in potential energy then it will require some more data like amount of charge ,polarity of charge, separation between charges.
