I would not worry (yet) bettas are emotional/fussy things, some more than others. Some will stop eating if something gets moved/changed in the tank. He isn't feeling too well from the ammonia and is scared from the move. Keep offering him foods and he will eat eventually. Make sure you remove any uneaten food because it will add to the ammonia.
Feeding him blood worms won't spoil him but could make him bloated/constipated so feed sparingly like once a week. A small high quality floating pellet is the best thing to feed him. He can eat flakes but they can give him digestion issues. His stomach is about the size if his eye so keep that in mind when feeding him.
