I wouldnt be worried, birds can go about 3-4 days without eating, and can take even longer to settle in. Just keep an eye on him, chekc inisde his dish if theres any broken seed shellsYou can also try giving him some Millet, most birds think of this as candy, so will usually take it willingly. At least it will get some food into him. Obviously that can't become the staple of his diet, but at least to get him started until he's more comfortable.
