Sometimes it takes them awhile to adjust to their new home. He should eat eventually.

My Betta Jaws didn't eat for 2 weeks! I was very concerned at first, but he just needed to adjust and is thriving now. Now on the other hand, my Betta Snowflake has eaten like a champ since day one.

I think either way is "normal". Just depends on the fish!
