Hydrogen bonding is a very strong intermolecular force, so the forces between the molecules are much stronger compared to other forces like dipole-dipole or dispersion forces. Melting point is increasing the energy of the atoms so that they go from solid to liquid, and if the attractive forces are stronger, it will take more energy to melt the solid.
When a compound melts, it goes from solid to liquid, increasing the distance between molecules. Hydrogen bonding is a strong intermolecular force, so with hydrogen bonding, increasing the distance between molecules within a compound is harder, requiring more energy, thereby resulting in a higher melting point.
