When Invictus and I first brought home our male BCI, he didn't feed, he actually shied away from the prey, but, after we let him settle in for about a week or so, he started feeding like a champ. And, as everyone else has already said, do not force feed unless it's a last resort IE: The snake has refused prey to the point where it's on the brink of starvation. The force feeding can only stress them out more and there's a higher chance that the snake with regurge the prey. It sounds like your snake only unhinged its jaw, which sounds normal, but, if its jaw is still looking misplaced, you should take it to a vet. Good luck with your snake.
