It sure does! Generally, in American English, we don't say "wet behind the ears at ___." You might say, for example: "Oh Steve? Yeah, he's doing great -- just a little wet behind the ears." So we generally wouldn't say the "at ___" part. That would depend on the context and the conversation topic. It wouldn't be wrong to say the second part, just uncommon.
