when salt or sugar are poured into different kinds of vessels why do they take the shape of the vessel?

This is because the sugar or salt crystals are so small that they act as the molecules of a solid and remain closely packed and takes the shape of the container but there are spaces between the container and the sugar or salt but they are hardly visible.
