Touch button problem

Hi. I am currently working on a game project in which for now the character can jump , sprint , prone and crouch with all the animations with using keys space ,shift, x and c respectively. But I want to put some touch controls on the screen for the same 4 actions but when I am doing it I am able to see touch buttons created but when I press them they seem to do what they are suppose to but the animation seems not to be working . Ex -for jump , the character would jump move up and down without the animation . Please help me.
