I was wondering if there is an available commentary to the Bahiya sutta. Im sure Buddhagosa has covered this sutta but i was wondering where it could be found if it was?

The main sources are Buddhaghosa's commentary to verse 101 of the Dhammapada, and Dhammapāla's commentary to the Bāhiya Sutta. The former is in Burlingame's Buddhist Legends (and various online sources); the latter is in Peter Masefield's PTS translation of the Udāna Atthakathā.

Best wishes,
