Not Interested in Mealworms?

Hello, I am new to this forum as well as the gecko world. This past Saturday I found a small leopard gecko hiding in my trailer. I live in a mountainous area so it was very cold, I'm not sure where he came from and how he was still alive. I took him in, and that afternoon bought a 10 gallon enclosure and everything for it. I bought him mealworms and crickets, but so far has shown no interest in the mealworms. I gave him two crickets, but five mealworms are still sitting in his dish. Is there anything I can do to get him to eat the mealworms? Or should I just feed him crickets? Thanks in advance for the help.
