How old is he? Try getting a little potty chair, like the ones you use to train into, and see if he will poop on that instead. When a child has to bear down to poop, I think they can feel a little out of control of their little body, and it is scary to be sitting on the big potty. Or, you can try having him sit and read some books when you know he has to go and talk to him and maybe he will poop without thinking about it. In the meantime encourage and praise him for the successes, and try not to get upset when he goes in his pants.
