1) I talked to your mom yesterday, since you don't tell me anything.

2) I talked to your mom yesterday, since you're not telling me anything.

Is the first sentence the best choice if I feel that he hasn't shared anything with me over a long time?

And is the sentence natural?

Yes, the first sentence is the most appropriate.

The suffix -ing would be used if the situation wasn't a habit, and the sentence would be more like "I will talk to your Mom, since you're not telling me anything".

I hope that helps.
