He’s only a teenage boy so for him to go and meet someone who he knows nothing about that’s brave and signs of a hero. I think the orphanage kind of look at Jacob as a hero because in the chapter 7 they put on a big show for him. In the passage it says “Everyone is happy to see Jacob. Once he sits down, the show begins. Several of the residents take turns going up on stage, showing off their skills. The show begins with Miss Peregrine, who changes her shape from a falcon to a human in front of the audience.” I think it like a welcoming Jacob to the orphanage and accepting him by showing him their talents. Jacob has a special heroic gift that separates himself from other people, the author says “After Emma tells Jacob that his grandfather’s peculiarity was that he could see the monsters; Jacob confesses that he, too, can see them”.
