I got my cockatiel about a week ago and he is so sweet, I do not know how old he is though but I believe he is only a few weeks or months old. However, he mostly does not eat in his cage and will only eat if I take him out and lay some newspaper out and put food on it, he will forage around. In the cage he does not eat from his bowls much even though he clearly sees the food. Also, when I put him in his cage he always stands on his water bowl in the corner and chirps at me and paces which I guess is him signaling to me that he wants to get out again. Any tips on what to do?

Put his food dish on the bottom of his cage. He sounds like a newly-weaned baby. They find foraging off the floor easier than perching on and eating from a dish.
