A few pellets a day, about 3-4. Over feeding can lead to swim bladder disorders, bloat or constipation, all of which can be deadly.
Try switching it up with the occasional blood worm, brine shrimp or the inside of a cooked pea.
The brine shrimp and pea will help to act as a sort of laxative, to help them keep things moving through their system nd prevent blockages.
Best of Luck!
Feed your betta a couple pellets, 2-3 and check on him in a few minutes. If his belly looks a tiny bit pudgy that's perfect. If it still looks sucked in or flat, feed one or two more. Every fish is different, and a betta in 80 degree 10 gallon tank will eat more than one in a room temp 1 gallon bowl.

Over feeding can lead to fatal infection such as swim bladder problem or dropsy.....which can be deadly if not treated at the initial stage.
Feed your betta in small portion once or twice daily & siphon daily to prevent ammonia buildup. If you don't have the time (like me) do it 2 day once.
A simple gauge is when the stomach develop a gentle curve.
Btw...betta can easily survived a week or more without food... i feed my older fish once daily & they look healthier then ever.
