If the mum will let you touch them, I'd say feel free. However, DO NOT pick them up, or take them away from the mother cat. They need time to 'bond' for awhile. I was always told that you can pet the babies, but no more than you have to. And feel free to check on them every now and then to make sure momma and babies are doing okay. Hope this helps!
PS-I'm no expert, I've just been raised on a farm, and all this stuff was learned, sometimes painfully!, by firsthand experience.
