No, there’s not a button that you’re missing that will allow you to jump, but instead, you will need to equip a certain item that you’ll actually get pretty early on in the game.
The Roc’s Feather lets you bounce around as if Link was weightless and can be obtained in the first dungeon that you encounter, Tail Cave.
Just go through the dungeon and solve the puzzles and you will just find it in a chest organically as you progress.
In order to use the Roc’s Feather, you need to go in the menu and equip it to one of the assigned buttons. To do this, go into the menu with the + button and then hit the R button to go to the items tab.
Now, just highlight the feather and then press X or Y to equip it.
To sum things up:
- Go to the Tail Cave dungeon, the first one in the game.
- Just go through the dungeon as normal and then you will find a chest containing Roc’s Feather.
- Make sure to equip it before trying to jump over anything.
