    That's quite common. Things should get normalized after a week or two. If it takes longer, slip some small earthworms into the water for the turtle to find. Do NOT feed it any plant matter until the turtle matures.

    One common reason is not warm enough. Try putting a lamp over the container he is in. Also, turtles don't eat every day. Twice a week is plenty for them.
