Baby parrot fish doesn't eat

i have a 120 gallon tank with 6 relatively small BPs, one large BP and a few assorted small fish.  I just introduced a baby (juvenile) BP to the tank. I say he's juvenile because he is black and I assume he hasn't changed color yet.  He hides much of the time.  During feeding times he comes out but doesn't eat.  I have had him two weeks now and I have only seen him eat one flake, and I watch him carefully. I am worried he's going to starve himself to death. People tell me he must be eating when I'm not watching or he must be picking at the bottom, but I have never seen him pick at the bottom.  None of the other fish ever harass him or bully him so I don't know what the problem is.  If anyone has any input I would appreciate it.
