There is nothing that you can do about the inquiries, but if they were done within a short time period of each other FICO should only score them as one inquiry as long as the creditor entered the information correctly when conducting the pull. You will still see all of the inquiries, but they would be scored as only one. Hard Inquiries fall off your reports in two years and lose their punch after one year. If you have a low score there are other reasons beside the inquiries as inquiries do not make up that big of a part of your score calculation. I suggest reading the many articles on here as well as across the internet on "how to build credit".
