Betta is still a little bashful

I brought home two new bettas last week (one is mine and one is my husband's) while one is very friendly and adjusting very well, the other is still quite bashful. He builds bubble nests and swims around fine but whenever I go to feed him or say 'hello' he still hides, while the other will follow my hand to the surface and hover close to my fingertips eating the pellets as I drop them and even come over to say hi when i walk near the tank. Any tips on how to make my one betta less shy other than give him time? I don't want to force him but I do want him to be more comfortable

the outgoing betta is significantly smaller (younger?) than the shy one if it helps.

Bettas are like humans and have individual characters.Your Betta will get used to you being around and realise that you are the food bringer (instant friend ).
