Make sure it's turned on under sink, if ok there, turn it off, take supply off at faucet, point it into a bucket, turn it on, and see if if you have flow through it. if so then it's in the faucet stem.

What brand is the faucet?

Then if no flow through supply line, the shut off could be plugged up.

Remove supply on shutoff and see if it's plugged up. Do you have hot water to other taps?
