Question New Betta Fish

On Saturday, I got a new Betta-Fish. The only problem is that he is not swimming, eating but he floats around and blows small bubble nests. I don't know what to do to get him to start swimming? and eating?. I got the Betta Fish from Petsmart. I need some advice from the community.

Thank you.

New Betta-Fish

I just got a new Betta-Fish today. Right now he is doing just fine;
swimming in his new home. I will post pictures to the site as soon as I can.

Thank you for the advice.
