Exclamation stays at top of tank sometimes turns over on its side

my beta fish has been at the top of the tank for 2 days, it only moves when i tap the glass or when i try and touch it, sometimes it turns on its side and looks like its dead. occasionally it swims for a short amount of time and then right back to the top of the tank flopped over looking like its dead, also my beta isnt eating at all. SOMEONE HELP! what should i do ?

-Size of tank?
-Did you acclimate the fish?
-Do you have a heater? What is the temperature.

One of mine does the same thing, he just hangs out at the top and looks like hes dead, and hes done it for months. We had him in a little half gallon for a long time then recently moved him to a 15g with a heater and filter and all that and for the first couple days he swam around now hes back to faking dead, i just figured hes super lazy.
