Suppose a person attains siddhi over a particular mantra.

Is it recommended by scriptures to hide about possession of such siddhi from public?

    Siddhis must be kept secret. Showing or not can be possible only by Guru or Divine order. – TheLittleNaruto Feb 15 at 17:48

I dont know how should I explain in which sadhana I read it, (also I am not sure of its validity in all sadhanas) in Nila-Saraswati tantra(16th Ulhassa), 119th verse:

तेन चेन्निधनं न स्यात्तदा देवी प्रकुप्यति। त्रिरात्र वाथ षड्रात्र नवरात्रचत्व गोपयेत्‌ ॥

Forget about the first line, the second line says a person who has attained siddhi must keep it secret for 3 nights or 6 nights or 9 nights.

Found one more for Kundalini shakti.

कुन्डलीशवितसिद्धि: साद्वर्णकोटिशतैरपि। तस्मात्त्वयापि गिरिजे गोपनौय प्रयत्नतः॥

Through the means of 100 crore varnas, one obtains the siddhi of Kundalini shakti, one must by all means keep it secret. (KankalMalini tantra)
