Mine wouldn't eat in the beginning either. I found that teasing him with something meaty is more likely to get him to eat. Even though he's just a little guy he's still got a serious bite so you can give him something a bit tougher like shrimp (and keep your fingers back of course). Mine seems to need to see the food before he will go after it.
Also I've found my puffer easily intimidated (even by much smaller fish) so it might really help to move him to a QT. A stronger current seemed to make him more active as well. Before he'd just sit depressed in a corner.
Keep teasing him, he'll eventually eat.
