poking wire help!!

How long after an adjustment did you feel the wire in the back begin to poke your cheek?? I have had Damons since 11/4 and my first adjustment on 01/12.....two day's later I was feeling the wire. I have to keep wax on it ALL the time. Is it too soon to call them to clip it?? Thanks for your help!
