how do you write an if this or this then statement in Jquery

Hi I am trying to write a if then statement with Jquery... to no avail..

I have a hidden input (named recipientId)  that gets a value based on an <a id>  

what I want is to show a  form if the value of recipientId is 6,5,4...

This is what I have so far..

Thanks for help!!!

<script>
$(document).ready(function() { 
 var v = $(this).attr("id");
        $("#recipientId").val(v);
	if 	($("#recipientId").val("6"), $("#recipientId").val("5"), $("#recipientId").val("4")) {

//show div
		
		
	}
})
</script>

For some reason I can't get the form to show...

I tried using to trigger an alert but can't seem to get that to fire as well

<script>
$(document).ready(function() { 
	var v = $(this).attr("id");
	if($("#recipientId").val()==6 || $("#recipientId").val()==5 || $("#recipientId").val()==4) {
	alert("It works!");
	}
})
</script>

Are you including the jQuery library before that code?

Actually the code doesn't make sense at all.
I'm guessing this code

	if($("#recipientId").val()==6 || $("#recipientId").val()==5 || $("#recipientId").val()==4) {
	alert("It works!");
	}

should be inside your onclick function earlier in the page.
