First thing is to soak that baby in some warm shallow water. It looks very dehydrated.

Next read through these two threads at least twice to learn the proper care info:

@irwm You can get him to eat things besides lettuce, it just takes time and patience. Everything happens slow with tortoises. The care sheet should be followed and make sure to ask ANY questions.
