We use had better to give strong advice, or to tell people what to do. After had better, we use the infinitive without to.
Had better may suggest a threat. It is not used in polite requests.
Had better refers to the immediate future, but the form used is always past. Have better is not possible.
We can put better before had for emphasis. This is common in British English.
We normally make the negative with had better not + infinitive.
