10 week old refusing bottle :(

My 10 week old has always been bottle fed and initially took it fine. Over Christmas he had a bad cough and cold and started refusing feeds, which I know if normal. But now he is better it is a huge battle to feed him. As soon as the bottle goes in his mouth he screams until I replace it with a dummy. I swap them over to try and trick him and this usually lasts for about 10 minutes before he gives in and eats. I know he's hungry but I don't know why he puts up such a fight! Any tips?

Have you had him checked for silent reflux?

No I haven't. Should I take him to the doctors? Or should I call my hv?

Doctor would be best for silent reflux. X
