A covalent type bond is formed - this one is sometimes called a "dative" covalent bond. You can imagine a fluorine lone pair being donated to the H+.

You would also expect this [H-F-H]+ molecule to be non-linear, as VSEPR theory says that the lone pairs will repel the electrons on bonds more (similar reasoning for why water is not linear).
