I know he jumps automatically for most gaps and you can tap above his head to make him jump straight up. But I have run across things I want to jump over (like a stone wall) that he will not attempt to jump over. I think it is because he normally couldn't wear it but I have him wearing moon shoes so he could clear it and the straight vertical jump won't do it.
