Nine month old won't eat anything except breastmilk

My nine month boy has not started on solids yet. He is completely breastfed till now. He is only 1712 pounds, has lost weight. Was doing very well till four months when I was breastfeeding him along with expressed breast milk. Then suddenly he decided he didn't want the expressed milk from the bottle but straight from the breast. I have been to the feeding clinic and havent had any success. He wont show any interest in food. I am really concerned as not sure about his nutritional intake. Saw the ped. yesterday. She mentioned, my son might have developed a food aversion. Any suggestions, how can I make him eat. He closes his mouth so tight and looks away. Always ends up in a fight or I have to give up in front of him. Tried pureed and fingure foods both. He wants to be independent, but still not much interested in a lot of foods.
