Bettas are very fussy when it comes to feeding.What brand of pellets are you using?

im using hikari betta bio-gold,but it was a smaple so i bought new pellets from aqua culture. he loved the hikari betta bio gold at first but he didn't eat them the next day. he would chew on it and spit it out. He eats the brine shrimp fine

Try bloodworms, mosquito larva, daphnia, microworms and other frozen foods. Bettas are predatory in nature but I would advise you not to feed it excessively on one food as these are prone to bloat.

I think that if you give him his pellets he'll eat it if hes hungary enough. Maybe you could give him the shrimp on occasion untill he eats whats given to him.
