spacing around identifiers

In a recent submission, I had a line similar to the following:
private static int getNumber( int num, String str )
and received the following nitpick:
"spacing around all identifiers (including between identifier and punctuation)"
Is it correct to put a space between the identifier and the comma, like:
private static int getNumber( int num , String str ) ???
