I would say that the writer of Hebrews is not implying that Jesus was somehow less than a perfect being in the sense of having some flaw or imperfection in His nature or actions that made Him so. Instead, he is saying that God the Father made Jesus perfect for the specific purpose of redeeming a universally sinful humanity by incarnating Him as a sinless human, and then by having Him undeservedly and vicariously experience the suffering and separation from God that all humans should receive because of their sin.
Hebrews 2:10 For it was fitting for him for whom [are] all [things] and through whom [are] all [things] in bringing many sons to glory to perfect the originator of their salvation through sufferings. --Lexham English Bible to perfect the originator The idea here is that Jesus was made whole (or complete) --the word translated “perfect” means “complete, effective, adequate.” --through His suffering and death; He already was sinless (Hebrews 4:15).
