You probably need to resort to the tough love technique. Put his food down for 15 minutes. If he hasn't eaten after that time, pick it up and don't offer him anything until the next meal time. Keep repeating this until he learns to eat when food is offered. He'll catch on soon. Dogs won't let themselves starve.

Is he eating some but not all or not eating anything at all?

If he's not eating at all I second Bailey's advice. He'll eat eventually. You could even try soaking it in a bit of warm water and see if that helps.

If he's eating some, but not all of his food you may need to simply cut back on the amount you're giving him. The bag suggested Nicky get a full cup of food a day, but he wouldn't eat all of his food. I cut it back to 1/2 cup daily (1/4 x2) and he's been doing just fine.
