No matter what I do I can’t fill in my upper chest enough...I hit it 4 times a week minimum just can’t seem to gain the size I’m looking for....any suggestions ?

4x a week? That could be your problem.

I have a really flat upper chest but the single exercise that has really started to make a difference that I never used to do is Incline Flyes. Yes, that single exercise is a game changer for me atleast and now I totally understand why all the pros do them so much. I don't do a deep stretch bc that is bad for my shoulders, but even so my chest gets stimulated and I can really squeeze my inner/upper pec on the positive. 3-4 sets for 10-12 reps
Agree 100

Imo if you're hitting your chest with enough intensity to grow then once every 5-7 days is enough. On gear your MPS is elevated for much longer so no need to train it twice a week unless you have great genetics and can actually benefit from it, even then it's probably only a short term benefit until burnout occurs.

Seriously only work out one muscle groups a week?

Get Shredded!
My upper chest was one of my most underdeveloped muscles in my twenties. I tried everything. When I was in my thirties a friend gave me a great exercises for upper chest.
Exercise- Superset dumbell flyes with Barbel incline press. The flyes would be 20 reps with squeezing your upper chest at the top of the exercise. 90 seconds rest, followed by heavy incline barbell press. 8-6 reps max. Wait 90 seconds, repeat. 6 sets of each.
