I have a healthy leaf fig tree that does not fruit. I was told it is a white fig but am not sure. I am thinking this type needs to be pollinated.

Welcome!

You don't need a pollinator because it is the flowers of the fig tree we eat.

You do need to figure out why your fig is not flowering. The usual cause is water: either too much or too little. As your tree looks very healthy, I suspect its too much.

Looks like it's growing under trees? Figs require full sun and warmth for good fruit production.
