Give him another week or so, then try again. He's probably still hardening up.

Be patient! :)

Try to offer food every couple days. He maybe refusing food when your watching/disturbing him. Try to put food in and leave it be for a couple hours.

Just make sure if you are putting in a live pray item it is something that is not going to hurt it ie.. a cricket try a small roaches that way if it is harden up it will be far less likely to hurt your T. but yeah you just might need to wait a little longer.

After a molt, I wouldn't even try feeding for at least a week when a juvi is 1-2 inches. If after one week, the T doesn't want to eat, don't leave the food with it and try again every 2-3 days. Mine sometimes take two weeks to eat after molting and that time could increase as the T gets bigger.
