I think, to begin you are probably overfeeding your betta. Try half of that or less. Also - you might contact the palce where you got him and find out what they were feeding him. It may have been flakes. Whatever it was you might get some of that. You can train them over to the new food it just takes a little time. Good luck!

2 or 3 at each feeding is good (4-5 a day) and one day per week you should fast him

Try crushing them a bit. Is he small?

I had that same problem, when I asked a fish expert, he said that some foods are harder than others. Its all in how the fish food was made, I had to go out and get another brand, and it works perfectly now.
Don't you just love picky fish?
