xD As long as he doesn't show any medical issues, I wouldn't worry. Bettas do weird things sometimes. :P
My first one would bury himself under his gravel..like literally fling rocks over himself and just sleep there.

Nope. If he starts to clamp his fins to his side or sitting at the bottom a lot, that's a sign of something wrong.

His tank isn't cold is it? Just keep his tank warm and dark for now to let him calm down. You can try feeding him either some pellets or a bloodworm soaked in garlic juice to tempt him into eating.

Its at 80 degrees. I tried flakes, and nothing. He moved around a little but he is still lethargic.

Maybe try feeding him in a few hours. He could be stressed from the move to a new tank.

As far as the straight up and down in the pebbles, betta often do this if they think they've found something interesting or are trying to get at/investigate an area. Nothing to worry about there.

You said more of his fins were missing, though? I worry that he might be taking up tailbiting due to stress and/or boredom from leaving his regular home. Perhaps even irritation on the ends of his fins from having them bitten before could cause that, sort of like how any animal will pick at a wound or scratch healing flesh when it itches.

I suggest adding some aquarium salt to his tank if you haven't already. It's actually much better than the medicine for him right now and will help prevent infections from setting in as well as soothe his tail.
