You have 2 candles. they are both lit. you put one directly above the other one with the wicks facing each other. but still enough room for oxygen.

would the candles stay lit? or would they go out because of the wax?

Depends on the type of candle used as well. Birthday candles will have a different result from, say, those monster round candles.

o heres another thought though, wouldnt the heat from the bottom candel continue to melt the wax from the top one? and would then (as long as the wicks were lined up) be dripped on itself and go out?

im revising my theory, the top one would go out very soon after you turn it over, but the bottom one would remain lit untill it melted the wax from the top candle and got dripped on itself

on a side note, to the OP, what caused you to wonder this anyway?
