The temperature is linked to the bettas metabolism, so if it is cold his metabolism will slow down and he won't need as much energy or be hungry. Also, I would recommend a pellet that has fish as its first ingredient. Hikari recently changed it to Wheat Meal or something. I recommend New Life Spectrum Betta Pellets or another betta pellet were the first ingredients are "fishy".

Your fish may just need time to adjust to his new home. He could be a shy little thing. But a heater could do wonders for him.
