I have had 2 budgies in the past but never a Cockatiel untill now, he is nearly 4 months old, had him DNA tested, registered at the vet, he has the door open morning till night, likes scritches, having trouble clicker training although he does participate when he is in the mood, i use millet as bait, i mean a treat, never bites (yet) will yell at wild birds through the window. sits/sleeps on me but dose not come to me yet, any advice welcome

Try to keep your sessions short enough so he is not getting bored or frustrated.
Aside from that, keep at it, you will get there in the end :)

Welcome! Your tiel is super cute. As Zara said, keep training sessions short. The trainer here at our aviary says 10-15 minutes and always try to end on a positive note. I think with any bird taking things slow and trying to move at his or her pace is important.
