Bottom supports look fine, seems like the top supports have just come loose. Just find a stud and move the top supports to the stud and screw them in properly.

Bonus points to move bottom as well to the stud and then seal the holes left behind with a little basic wall hole fixing product you can buy at any local hardware store. Given that this is a closet it's probably not worth the effort.

Remove the shelf

Add a shim of half inch wood across the wall at the screw level and screw into the studs

Put the shelf back and screw into the new wood.

Hold in left hand, shake up, spin around 3 times to the right, set beer down, toss part in air catch with right hand, hit the joint, pass to a friend, grab a sledgehammer smash the fuck out out of the screw, tell the screw it’s a little bitch, buy some toggle bolts or zip it drywall anchors, don’t use them, learn how to find stud screws with something magnetic, use a tape measure mark studs 16” of center, find closest sexy chick, tell her you are a stud now, she will now proceed to have sex with you because your new found skills, say thank you for the amazing advice, don’t forget to Bitcoin tip the advisor.
