How to have your subtask estimates included in the original parent task?

I have a parent task that has been estimated at 1 hour.  


I have 3 subtask within the parent:

Subtask 1 = 1 hour

Subtask 2 = 3 hour

Subtask 3 = 1 hour


When I look at the original parent task, my estimate only shows 1 hour when it should show the 1 hour + 3 subtask at 5 hours. Overall my parent task estimate does not reflect this as it only shows the parent task estimate. 

How do I make the subtask estimates roll up into the parent task so I see a total of estimated hours for the task in full. I need to be able to see this as PM. 

Thank you,

There is a "time loggin" panel in the issue view that shows you all the time logged.  It has a tick-box for swapping between "this issue" and "this issue and its sub-tasks".

The panel only appears if the task or sub-tasks have time data on them.  My Jira (8.4) does the below.  I've got a story with no time-tracking at all, but a sub-task with 44 minutes logged.

Thank you for the replay.

When I click the issue and go down to the time logged section, my interface is different from your example image. I have no drop down feature that showcases additional options. I have attached image for reference below: 

There's no image attached, but I can say it will look different if you are on Cloud, and even more different if you are using a Next-gen project rather than Classic.
