One of my bettas used to do that.

Bettas can live for a few days without eating any food, so you will be able to stop buy your LFS and get some different food.

Bettas, like any other fish, like variety. Try feeding him brine shrimp or bloodworms.

If he still doesnt like anything, he will learn that that is his only food source, and he will have to like it.

if he was spitting it out then he could be trying to soften it (is it a pellet?)
