Jack does his usual thing with the candle, jumping as per the rhyme. He is wearing a white nightgown and a pointed blue nightcap with a red tassel. The candle seems to have been recently snuffed or blown out, enhancing the overall safety of Jack as, being in a Victorian poem, his pajamas are likely not flame retardant.
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candlestick.
