My boy rejected the first kind of pellet I gave him, he would eat crushed up flakes. Eventually I got him eating frozen (not freeze dried) blood worms (which he noms like a fiend) and a different kind of pellet, I believe omega one. Just some general advice on pellets and other betta food, look for at least 42% protein, the first ingredients should be fish, not wheat or other such fillers.
Also if he's a new fish it may take him a while before he will start eating. They can last a long time without food. Frozen foods, or live foods are supposed to be extremely appealing to them. I can verify that they love frozen blood worms. Before I bought some the girl at the pet store showed me just how easy it was, and how much all the fish loved them.... You think bettas are carnivores? Try watching the angels or chicilids go for those suckers, they were jumping for it.
