It takes time for a recently purchased to bird settle in a new home and environment and usually after a few days of adjusting to the new place, budgies will start to feel more comfortable and they will begin to explore their cage, show some of their playfulness and they may also find their voices and start chirping/singing.

The fact that your budgie manages to squeeze his head through the cage's bars is not a good thing and it's clear this cage is not adequate for Ruby.
This is something that can't be left to chance, because your budgie can get injured or suffer a really tragic accident while squeezing through the bars.
You need to get a cage with the appropriate bar spacing for budgies and this should not go over 1/2 ".

It would be best to get the cage as soon as possible because you will never really know when your budgie will try to escape again and you may not be there when Ruby does so.
And you also must be careful in having the door (and any windows) to the room closed at all times especially when you're not home.
The links Deborah has given you for cage options should be useful in terms of making a decision and ordering online or going to a pet store and buying the cage.
