The answer is clap for him. You can only clap your hands and not someone or something. Then you clap said hands for someone or something.

The correct grammar is clap him. Clap is both verb and noun. Clap for him is widely use bcos most native English speakers feel more comfortable using it

Both of them are right. Clap him I swear British standard while clap for him is American standard, so it matters the one you are using, they are both correct
