I have 2 baby RES. They don't like eating certain types of pellets and they don't eat a lot of veggie. They are very picky and the only food I've found they will eat is Saki-Hikari probiotic enhanced nutrient mix for turtles. Besides looking for any recommendations on treats to give them, they will usually take a bite of the soft pellet the open and close their mouth a couple times. After closing their mouth they will leave their mouth open with food inside. Is this Normal?

RES usually scarf their pellets down quickly. Is it possible they're getting too much in a bite? If you are in the US, there are lots of different food options I could suggest.
