Baby wont eat

My   Baby was. Born with slight tongue tie and the pedia already cut a portion of it when he was just 5 days old to address the problem.. Pedia said that he is fine now but ever since he was 1 month old feeding him has been  a great problem.. He used to vomit after eating so i switched to giving him lactose free formula bec he seemed to have too much gas in his tummy. Until he was on his 3rd month I switched back to regular formula because he refuses to drink milk, maybe bcause he didnt like the taste of lactse free anymore and it went well for him til his 4 th month . He  seemed stucked to 3 oz of milk for the last 3 mos and now that he just turned 5 mos, feeding him became a BIG problem for me.. He prefer to suck his 2 fingers when he is hungry rather than drink milk. Only when he is into deep sleep will i be able to feed him . He used to be on ave weight but has been losing weight now for the last 2 weeks because of his hunger strike. Is there any other possible reason for his unusual behavior? He is not yet teething now, could it be acid reflux?
