The question owner can tick own question as BEST ANSWER

That is by design. If someone finds an answer to their question themselves after asking, why shouldn't they be able to mark it as the best? It is the best answer for them, because they found it. Note that users don't gain points for selecting their own answer as best.

I don't think there is an option to turn that off, but if it really bothers you, you can make a filter plugin that prevents a question-asker selecting their answer as best.

You can, however, disallow allowing users to answer their own question.  Its on the Posting Admin tab.  I agree, however, that its a good option to have and I've left it enabled on my site.  The Answers are the important bit - I don't care who answers the question because its the information that my users want.
TBH I'm not 100% sure what the poster is asking since they talk about best answer on a question...

As ScottCher mentioned, go to: >Admin >Posting >uncheck: "Allow users to answer their own question"

Then they cannot answer their own question and consequently cannot choose it as best answer.

They can however still answer their own question by comment.
