Are H-bonds polar or non-polar? How do you know, I need an explanation please.

Hydrogen bonds are strong dipole-dipole forces that result from polar bonds within a molecule. When an N, O, or F atom is bonded to H, the molecule becomes extremely polar due to the high electronegativity difference.

Bonds themselves are not polar or non-polar, only entire molecules have polarity. Hydrogen bonding is a dispersion force that causes molecules to be slightly attracted to each other if they have N, O, or F. But this force between separate molecules has no effect on the polarity of an individual molecule.

Hydrogen bonding is the bond that hydrogen makes to highly electronegative F, O or N. These are more or less great dipole-dipole interactions so they are very polar

Hydrogen bonds are found in molecules which are polar, and must include F, O, or N bonded to a H. Note that Hydrogen bonds are intermolecular forces, so the entire molecule is considered polar.
