How Often To Feed?

How much do you guys usually feed and how much does your betta eat in a feeding?

Fed Sheldon this morning and he only ate about 2-3 small pellets, fed again just now and doesn't seem bothered.

I feed my guys one pellet 4-5 times a day.
Betta can be really snotty about their food, try to give him/her a variety of pellets and maybe some other stuff once in a while. If you do feed him/her live bait make it a rare treat (once a week or less) or they may refuse to eat normal food.

No he shouldn't. Try to get a pellet with meat in the first few ingredients, also food depends on size, so if he's tiny he should eat less. As long as his tummy doesn't swell. And maybe try freeze dried blood worms? I seem to see a lot of betta owners feeding that to their fish
