Use this to remove even the x-tick label as in the above picture:
plot(1:10) % your plot here
set(gca,'XAxisLocation','top', 'box','off', 'XTick', [])
If you need labels:
set(gca,'XAxisLocation','top', 'box','off')
Look here and here

In general, to move your x-asix on top:
set(gca,'XAxisLocation','top')
To hide the axis:
set(gca,'xtick',[])
or
h = gca;
h.XAxis.Visible = 'off';

Thanks Vero,
In this case will I be able to turn off only the bottom x-axis off and leave the top x-axis?
Thanks

I gave you more options because your need is not clear to me. You should try one of the above. I think the first one could be fine:
x = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
plot(x,y)
set(gca,'XAxisLocation','top')
