How do I stop my child sucking their thumb?

Help! One of my 7 year old twins still sucks his thumb and no matter what I try I just can’t seem to get him to stop. He also uses a minky blanket as a comfort every night so possibly a sensory thing?

My son was a finger sucker. We used that nail stuff for people who chew their nails. Just make them wash hands befor eating then reapply.
