Does https and non https links appear as 2 different websites to Google?
i have a website, it has https://, but if http:// is typed it does not redirect to https://,
so my question is whether google considers this 2 urls as separate websites? does this lead to duplication issues?
It is possible.
You should redirect http -> https
Yes, According to the Google Guidelines, Google considered https & non https as an different URLs
You need to redirect to make one i.e http => https
