Whichever you feel like using. So long as it's not a &, and it's in the right place...

It really does not matter. To see someone attempting to use proper grammar and spelling is enough. Either can be used as the use of the apostrophe is a lost art.

' is an apostrophe

The superscript sign ( ' ) used to indicate the omission of a letter or letters from a word, the possessive case, or the plurals of numbers, letters, and abbreviations.

the ` I can't find a definition of.
