the surface that we choose for the application of guass`s law is called the gaussian surface.you may choose any guassian surface and apply guass`s law.however ,take care not to let the guassian surface pass through the discrete charge.this is because electric field due to a system of discrete charges is not well defined at the location of any charge.the gaussian surface can pass through a continuous charge distribution
