Can you mark on the image what is your expected outcome? Where do you want to move the x-labels?

First, those are called the xtick labels. It turns out moving them is a pain, but I did find a potential solution here:
a=gca;
a.XRuler.TickLabelGapOffset = -45;

By this comment text shift up and down, whilst I want to shift text to the center without shift of axis, for instance,
| | | |
Jan Feb Mar
| | |
Jan Feb Mar

A better way to phrase your question is:
How do I move the xtick labels to midway between xticks?
My immediate response would be: don't. Doing this is confusing.
However, if you feel you must, there are many answers here on how to manually set the location and text of ticklabels using the text() command
