I am kind of worried. 6, 10, 14. Do I need to put wooden dowels inside the straws? Thank for your help.

No need for wooden dowels - those straws will support a lot of weight!

no wooden dowels inside of straws. but if you are stacking and delivering, wooden dowel thru all the tiers. hth

Ditto! And I would put 6 in the 14" and 4 in the 10" leaving the middle empty so the big, wooden down (sharpened in one end) can go through all the tiers and into the cake board. Basically take 1/2 of the size of the tier minus 1.

Same here, but I don't center dowel, I just "glue" my tiers together with melted chocolate. Very stable.
