My initial thought on reading you post is that he is going into shed, although other members have made some valid points to look out for.
As for not feeding it is probably too soon after getting him, he will want to settle in first - also mine don't eat if they are in shed mode, and sometimes don't eat for weeks at a time for the hell of it! With regards to mine not eating I don't worry too much so long as they don't loose condition...in time you will get to know your snakes quirks
Also as previously mentioned, if in doubt get a vet check.
good luck
