If he is active then he is probably okay. Try different types of food to see what he will eat. Check out what the baby turtles at petshops are being fed (this is usually feeder guppies, *ask the clerk for feeder guppies and they will show you*). If he still won't eat keep trying different things. A few things I would recommed that my turtle ate after he refused to eat would be: worms, feeder guppies, steak, fish meat, and pretty much any meat (although raw would be best for a baby). If you just got him then just be patient and keep introducing food until you find something he will eat.
