My son is 11 years old, and he has gaps between his teeth. I am planning on getting his teeth fixed with clips. Please suggest if it is appropriate for his age and if his teeth can be set at this age or need to wait for few more years? I guess he lost all of his milk teeth.

Hello, you can get the treatment done. It is the right age to get it done. Orthodontic (braces) treatment is the best and most conservative treatment. Visit an orthodontist and get it checked. Get x-rays done. Let him decide the treatment plan for you.
