What size is the cuttle, and what are you trying to feed it? It sounds like he is interested in the prey item, but not enough to actually dedicate the time to eat it, or, perhaps the prey item is too large?

At that size it is an adult and may be reaching senscence. This seems to be a commonly noted occurance in the older age of cuttles.

But maybe he has hurt it somehow??
