Inserting carriage return

I have already inserted a row without a carriage return. In my update statement, can I use the CHR(13)||CHR(10)to insert the carriage return?

CHR(10) is the newline character and CHR(13) is the carriage return character (Takes you to the beginning of the line). If you want to add it to the end of the column value you should be able to just append it:
UPDATE my_table
SET my_column = my_column || CHR((13) || CHR(10)
WHERE . . . . .
