You can sometimes, it depends on the males really and how calm they are. Some people on here have groups of 3 or 4 males, but it's extra risky that they'll fall out.

Would you consider having two groups of two instead?

Someone is rehoming 4 male (they think) babies, and 1 un-neutered male and female. I wanted to help, but can't afford another 2!

Yes you can as ive had 2 lot's of trios before but the pigs I had as trios were all very calm and docile.

it doesn't always work though and you wouldn't want to upset your current duo.

You could try to bond the 3 then, but beware that if they fight you'd need to buy another cage and all and it'd be expensive. It's a risk but could work.
