Yes. Everything is good. He is healthy and swimming all is well. But he is scared and not eating may be because of new home ???

Give more time to adjust not unusual for a new fish not eat until it's hungry. Also observe poop if white and stringy treat for intestinal parasites.
+1. Wait it out. Should start eating.

I agree with kno4te and tlindsey. Just wait a few more day before trying to feed again. Some fish are easy and will eat within minutes of being in a new tank. Some others are much harder and won't eat for days to weeks. Ya only really need to start worrying about it once it's gotten to around 3 weeks with no eating. Many different fish species can upwards of a month without eating in the wild so it's not too unnatural for a captive bred fish to refuse food for a week or 2 but after that point they should be hungry enough to try eating most anything ya put in as food.
