Unhappy Is my Betta sick or just picky?

Hi Everyone!

I just got a new Betta 3 days ago... he seems to be very active which leads me to believe he is pretty happy in his new home. However, he doesn't eat much at all. When I feed him he might eat one freeze dried bloodworm but that's all. I tried giving him flakes but he won't even go near them.
Do you think he might just be adapting to his new home or is there something wrong with him??
Please Help!

Bettas do take some time to get used to the place, but flakes really aren't good betta food, and freeze dried bloodworms is better as a snack, try pellets or mini granules for him.

But don't worry, some bettas takes over a week to get used to the new home. =]
