This is what the pop-up would have done

I was shooting slightly from above and the 2 flash units were slightly below. You can see that the top of his helmet was in deep shadow in both photos above. The pop-up would have filled that, at least a tiny bit, if its light had any effect.

This is a pop-up flash shot from the same position:
