Why isn't hydrogen the most electronegative element, compared to others like fluorine?

Probably because hydrogen doesn't have very many protons

Hydrogen is just a weird element in general and doesn't follow a lot of the conventional rules of the periodic table.
thats why they put hydrogen all the way in the left corner even though its not an alkali metal

There are fewer protons in its nucleus. Flourine also forms much stronger bonds with other atoms (which is one part of how electronegativity can be defined).
