Not eating?

I just got my new betta a few days ago like 4 days ago and it doesnt eat my pellets or bloodworms. So im windering why is it not eating? I think that the water is too cold or something.
Please help thank you!

Is he still Active and not Lethargic? It might be because he's new. Some Betta Fish even won't eat until a Week, or 2. As long as he doesn't look sick, he'll be fine. What Temperature is it exactly?

72 is unfortunately on the cool side. Is it possible for you to put its tank at a warmer location?

If he doesn't have a heater, get him one, even if he does eat, he will have troubles trying to digest it so you will have many problems with it. Depending on the size of your tank I can give you a wattage of heater to get. So just say...

What brand of pellets are you offering and what type of bloodworm, frozen, live, or freezedried?
