My son got his new braces the day before yesterday

My son got his new braces the day before yesterday. He is constantly touching them and I am afraid that he will break the wires or bands. Do you think he might stop if I coated them with the wax?

You can place wax, which may work as a distraction from the brace itself. But it is quite likely he will get used to them by today as they have now been in place for a couple of days.
