Ken is right. They do not usually take right to the bottle, unless they are pretty hungry. When holding the calf with your knees, it's good to back their butt up to a wall. That helps hold them still. It can take patience, but keep at it and he will eventually come around.

Make sure you buy a good milk replacer, not the soy based stuff.

Buy some calf starter and put that out for him to check out.

He should be ok with other animals, just make sure no one is getting beat up.
