when i first gave my son a bottle, he cried for about 40 minutes before he began to suck.
so, mabey, try to hold it in his mouth until he starts to suck, it might take a while.
also, try squeezing the nipple a little bit so he understands that there is food in there..lol.
if he thinks it is a funny thing, try not looking at him so much when you are feeding him. if he sees your face, that might be a big reason why he is doing this, he might be trying to show off.
hope this helps!
