at the square, cleft jaw

"I stood up and looked at him, at the square, cleft jaw and broad, lined brow and the firm folds of cheek, and began to think that here at last was an ally worth having. His whim-sical blue eyes seemed to go very deep."

I don't really get what "at the square" means in that context?
Does it mean "from the side of his face"?

    Superman has a square, cleft jaw. (Click on image for a larger version. Also, this is one artist's idea of Superman. He has been drawn by many different artists over 80+ years. It is possible that some did not give him such a jaw.)
