With a 1 gallon tank you need to change the water AT LEAST 3 times a week. You have to completely clean the tank/rocks etc.

The biggest problem with small tanks is heating. It is almost impossible to heat tanks smaller than 2 gallons. Smaller tanks are subject to temperature swings which can be dangerous to the fish.

I'd say, a tank of at least 2 gallons is necessary for your betta!
I have a 1 gallon tank, and it was fine. Dragon lived in there for a while, and he was perfectly happy in there.

Its a common thing, its suppose to be similiar to us chewing our food. If he does this the flake/pellet/etc. might have been to big of a peice for him to digest in one swallow, Try making the food slightly smaller. Also your betta might be a picky eater (which isn't to uncommon either), if this is true though, and you have nothing else to feed them, eventually it will eat when it gets hungry enough.

Otherwise, its nothing to worry to big about unless he just stops eating completely.
