Is .minecraft Folder Hidden on Mac | How to Unhide It

My friend is playing on a Mac while I am playing on a Windows machine, but we want to play on one server we created together. I told him I should be able to compile and send him a .minecraft folder so that we can both play. Unfortunately, he can't find the .minecraft folder where it is supposed to be. Is it hidden, and how can I unhide it?
