If he's eating, you can just mash up what you're eating for him. Potatoes, cooked carrots, banana... just make sure you don't add any salt or extra sugar. He probably just doesn't like the texture of jarred baby food.

My daughter was 8 months old before she started eating baby food. He's probably just not ready yet. No biggie, just let it go for a month and try again.

Your baby may just not be ready for it. My daughter wasn't particularly interested in food until she was about 9 months old and at that time, she outright refused anything pureed and went straight to finger foods. 6 months is only a guide, but it isn't absolutely essential.
