Is this normal for a betta fish?

This is my first time owning a betta since I was 8 years old and I just want to know is my betta is acting normally ;A;
I got him 2 days ago and he seems a little twitchy D:
He comes out to swim and eat and then he goes to hide in hit plant
I'll post some videos of him below:

It's normal..Give him a bit to get comfy and open up..He'll soon dance every time he sees the one who feeds him enter the room.

I have to say, this is one of the nicest things for me about having bettas. I have four... one seems to just not care what's going on (not sure yet if that one is mellow to the point of being fairly uninteresting or if he's sick), two will observe me without any obvious excitement, but one gets so excited when he sees me that I have to tap on the surface of his water with my finger to get him to stop happy dancing for me long enough to notice that he has in fact actually been fed. Being a single guy who lives alone, it's really nice that there's something happy to see me when I get home, even if it's only because he wants to be fed.

That is the best..I wet my finger to stick a pellet to it so that my betta can eat before the neons so now he has become a finger nibbler as well as a happy dancer.
