Abstract: Let $ \lambda(n)$ be the $ n$th normalized Fourier coefficient of a holomorphic Hecke eigenform $ f(z)\in S_{k}(\Gamma)$. In this paper we are interested in the average behavior of $ \lambda^2(n)$ over sparse sequences. By using the properties of symmetric power $ L$-functions and their Rankin-Selberg $ L$-functions, we are able to establish that for any $ \varepsilon>0$,

$\displaystyle \sum_{n \leq x}\lambda^2(n^j)=c_{j-1} x+O\left(x^{1-\frac{2}{(j+1)^2+2}+\varepsilon}\right),$

where $ j=2,3,4.$
