Answer:

No.

Explanation:

#H# and #H# can form #H_2#, also known as hydrogen gas.

Since both hydrogens have equal electronegativity, the bond is therefore non-polar, and electrons spend equal time around each nucleus.

However, since both elements are non-metals, and share electrons in their bonds, it is a covalent bond.

So no, it is not a polar covalent bond, but a non-polar covalent bond.
