A covalent bond occurs when there is a large difference in electronegativity between two atoms for example. Fluorine is very electronegative (as it is a non metal) and Hydrogen is not as electronegative. in fact there is a large difference in the electronegativity values. Therefore, a covalent bond occurs.
