When I crank the car it cranks right up most of the time. Some time the switch does not engage and there is no cranking or sound as if the switch is not engaging. When I try to start it at the relay switch are the starter it turns over but want crank and I have the key in the crank position. Then other time I turn the switch and it engage an cranks right up. Is my switch bad or could it be something else.

It turns over but it won't crank? Those are the same thing.

The two best suspects are an intermittent neutral safety switch and a pitted contact in the starter relay. The clue is if you hear the relay click when you turn the ignition switch to "crank".
