It's to do with acceptance on all fronts. He's new to the prison experience and it may be that shutting you out or anyone he can't touch or be with as was in the free world is something he can't cope with. The only way to cope is to not be a part of it. His defense mechanisms are growing stronger and he's putting that wall or that shield around himself to protect his emotions and his sanity. Write him once a month no matter whether he writes back or not. Keep it light....don't take anything to heart too seriously just now. Both of you are new to this and it's not easy. Time takes care of all and in the end it's the patient woman/man who wins in the end. Be patient with him dear and be good to yourself.
