Yes, this is allowed under no penalty. Even if you knock the ball off the tee accidentally with your club there is no penalty, it can simply be replaced on the tee.

If youre lining up your tee shot and accidentally touch the ball and it falls?

If it is the tee shot and this happens, there is no penalty and you can simply replace the ball, and you are still hitting your first shot. If it is a putt or pitch or an approach and you hit the ball accidentally there is a one shot penalty and the ball must be replaced. If it is not replaced and you finish out the hole you will be disqualified for not replacing the ball.

In golf if your opponent's ball knocks your ball into the cup what is the ruling?

There are two scenarios; 1. On the green- If you and your opponent are on the green and he hits you ball and knocks it into the cup, or hits your ball at all, you replace your ball (to as near where it was before it was hit as possible) and he plays his from where it lies, and he shall receive a 2 shot penalty. 2. If your ball is on the green and your opponent is off the green and he hits yours, you replace your ball as near as possible to where you believe your ball was before he hit your ball. There is no penalty.

Can you pick up your ball to make sure it's yOur ball every shot?

You shouldn't need to, you should mark your ball with a pen so you can identify it, you should also remember the brand and number of your ball. If you cannot identify your ball without touching it, you should call you opponent/ playing partner over, mark the ball with a tee, then lift the ball and if replace it in the exact place where you found it. You should note, 1. You must not touch your ball without marking it, this will result in a two shot penalty. 2. When you lift your ball you are not allowed to clean it, again this would result in a two shot penalty.

Can you move a stick out of the way of your golf ball?

If another player plays your ball, they receive a two shot penalty and you then replace your ball as near as possible to where it was before they played it. If someone walks past or an animal etc moves it, you simply replace it without penalty, where possible you must get the original ball, if you can not get the original ball, you may replace it with a new one.
