Yes, it is. Purposefully hiding something is as bad as outright lying, and i would have a hard time trusting him.
It is a lie. I was married to a gem that liked to give bits and pieces of the truth in a way that the listener would come up with the incorrect conclusion. The one HE preferred. He would always say he didn't lie and it wasn't HIS fault someone came up with the wrong idea. It is manipulative and deceitful. If it was important to know, I would have to ask a million questions.

If your DH is doing things and not telling you, you have to look at the WHY. Is he not used to being married?

If they are cheating on you for months but you never specifically ask the question and they just don't tell you, would you consider it a lie??
Buying candy or soda for the kiddo and not telling me is no big deal, but some things I believe are in fact lies even if not spoken.
