When carbon and hydrogen are bonded, is there a dipole moment?

There is not a dipole moment for CH bonds because the electronegativity difference between C and H is very small, so the bond is considered nonpolar.

No, there is no dipole moment when carbon is bonded to hydrogen because they have very similiar electronegativities.

Anytime a C atom bonds with an H atom (C2H2, CH6, C10H5, etc.), know that it is always non-polar and that there are no dipole moments.
