How do i get my fiddle leaf fig to grow branches outwards?

Hi Guys and Gals,

Can anyone help me. I have a fiddle leaf fig plant...

It's growing straight up rather than bushy and outwards.... It's two trunks which I've currently got pulled together so they grow vertically.

I've pulled leaves off the bottom of the trunks and trimmed the top today, but I've noticed on here people talk about notching...

What is this? Do I just cut a bit off the tree and hope it grows a branch?

I've attached photos.

Do I need to re pot it also?

I'm in Sydney Australia where it's currently spring about to head into Summer. Do I need to separate the two trunks?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
