I suspect your hibiscus has a fungal infection which can be treated with a fungicide. For verification, here is what a fungal infection on a hibiscus looks like:

Have you fertilized your hibiscus? That may encourage it to bloom as a growing hibiscus needs lots of nutrients in order to bloom well. . For more information on fertilizing hibiscus, please visit the following link:

Additionally, hibiscus will be more inclined to bloom if their care plan is being followed. I recommend a double-check on the care of your hibiscus using the following article:
