Yes you can touch and bend the cables. Just make sure you discharge yourself of any electrostatic charge to be safe in case you accidentally touch a sensitive component. within the case.

 

I think he means can he bend/move them with his PC turned on. Which... sure, you can, but if break the connection it will shut off or jump the gap/spark. It's better to just turn it off, discharge the power (turn off PSU switch and hit power button again to unload capacitors), ground yourself (static), and then work on your PC. Is it worth saving a few minutes at the risk of causing a problem?
