Salah has scored 12 goals in 11 appearances across all competitions this campaign - most recently finding the net twice in Liverpool's 3-2 win away at Atletico Madrid.
This form has prompted Jamie Carragher to hail Salah as the best in the world, but Henry disagrees with the Liverpool legend.
He believes that Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema are both ahead of Salah with their performances at international level, and this is where the Liverpool forward has fallen short in his eyes.
"Not yet," said Henry when asked on CBS Sport whether Salah is the best player in the world, in quotes published by the Daily Star.
"The goals that he is scoring, at the moment, are very good. But how can you forget about Lewandowski? How can you forget about Benzema? How can you forget doing it at the national level also?
"Right now, he's suffering a bit with Egypt. It's not easy. But he's not doing it there yet. But those goals are ridiculous. I love Salah. But he's not yet the best.
"Is he the best player right now in the Premier League? By a distance. On current form are you not putting Benzema there right now, with the way he is playing?
"What he is doing for France and at the Euros? It's not that clear, for me."
Salah captained Egypt in their two home and away World Cup qualifiers against Libya without scoring, as The Pharaohs won both matches 1-0 and 3-0 respectively.
In contrast, Benzema scored two goals in his two appearances in the UEFA Nations League for France, as Didier Deschamps' men became the second winners of the competition with a 2-1 victory over Spain in the final. The 33-year-old's form at club level is impressive too, with 11 goals in 11 games across all competitions for Real Madrid.
Lewandowski has netted nine goals in eight games in all competitions for Bayern Munich, but failed to score in Poland's last two World Cup qualifiers in the 5-0 and 1-0 wins over San Marino and Albania respectively.
