Knee wall ventillation - baffles?

Hello,

I just had blown insulation added to my attic area but it has glogged up the slanted areas of the roof that leads to the kneewall space. Insulator said baffles were not necessary since I did not have soffits. Roof is passive ventiltion with 2 gables and a few vents in the upper roof area.

Is he correct that baffles wouldnt affect anything?

Your going to have to sketch something up to explain this!

And what the hell is "glogged"??

If you do not have soffit vents then having the area open doesn't really do anything!
