In line 72 it says, "A momment later he blew out his candle.  It bothered him."  No one knew his real identity.  He was in his apartment, which wouldn't be strange to anyone out that late.  So why did he blow the candle out?  Give it some thought and develop some insight into what he was going through.
I think that Jean Valjean blew out the candle because noone knew his true identity so he blew out the candle so noone would ever find out
