It takes some time for them to settle in and glass surfing is something again that they will settle dawn and get use to. The best way to end the glass surfing is to put plants on all three sides of the tank and plant heavily. This cuts down on any reflection,and also calms them down by giving them a sense of safety.
As for the food, When you feed flakes is it the bigger flakes they pick up and spit out? If this is the case betta have small teeth and they tend to nibble or as we see it taking a flake and spitting it out. The reason is they can't swallow the whole flake. So they bite some off and then go back for more. Nibble spit, nibble spit.
