If he is in a small bowl, his water needs to be changed every other day. Probably 100% water changes. I can understand every three days, but a week and a half is way too long. Ammonia will build up (created by your fish's waste) if you don't and will kill your fish (Which I suspect may be happening now). I assume it isn't heated or filtered? Bettas are healthiest at about 76-82F. If this bowl is under a gallon, I would consider finding your betta a bigger bowl. He'll be much happier and healthier, I promise
