So he is supposed to be Yoda for Halloween and we can't get the ears to stand up. He looks more like eyore! Lol. Any ideas on how to get his ears on the hat to stand up.

I would try inserting wooden skewers or small dowel rods into the ears and hotglueing them on both ends. I recently did this for a cat costume for my niece to make her ears stay nice and tall

I’d try hot gluing pipe cleaners in the folds so you can shape it a bit.

I was thinking about that but I didn't know if they would be strong enough

You can twist 2-3 together for more strength.
