Is the Moon bigger than the Sun?

The Moon is not bigger than the Sun.

The Sun is 865,000 miles in diameter.
The Moon is 6,790 miles in diameter. For an easy comparison draw a circle on a paper about eight inches in diameter; that will be the Sun.  Now place a small dot on it; that will represent the Moon.
