Could he be a jumper?

Could he be a jumper?
The biggest we have jumped so far is 3'6 and we trotted into it. He has more balance at the trot than than the canter. We are now working on cantering into fences quietly.

The first picture Is a few years old. Its not the best picture. I will have to get more when I go to see him.
The second picture is our first time over 3'6. Excuse my equitation, I still have a LOT of things to fix.
Anyway, do you think he could be a little jumper.

Do you have any videos of him jumping? Have you ever free jumped him? (if yes how high did he jump) and how high were you thinking? He is super cute though and looks like he really enjoys it, and you look like you enjoy it too :)

I actually don't have any videos, but I am going to get some this week. I have never really tried free jumping him. Mostly because I don't think he would go over it. He like a confident rider going into the jumps. If your not sure your going over the fence, he is absolutely not going over it. Therefore, I never thought he would do well free jumping. If you think he would or have any tips or tricks, I would really appreciate it. Another thing is he really seems to enjoy it after he goes over it once.
