Its easier to spot a partial charge in a covalent too when the electronegativities between the two atoms are more different. When they are about the same or closer to being the same then the electrons are more equally shared and it can be less noticeable per say.
A nonpolar molecule will have no charge and a polar molecule will have partial charges. A partial negative would go on the more EN side and a partial positive would go on the less EN side of the molecule because the electron concentration goes more towards the more EN element.
