hey, welcome to the forum.
what is the size of your tank? does it have a heater? what are the water parameter? (tested with liquid test kit)
most new fish will not eat in the first coulple day bcuz they are getting used to the new enviorment. if its past a couple days then you may have to buy and try various brands of betta pellets/flakes until you get one he likes. Yes bettas are extreamly picky.
and its also good to give him some variety with frozen bloodworms/brineshrimp once a week or so

He may be too cold. Temperature needs to be at least 78 degrees F.

Hes probably just adjusting to the new home. Hope dis helps 8)
