Ive added a custom comment field to comments of my node i.e. new fields beneath comment_body that being field_flag_reason and field_unflag_reason

I want to hide these two fields for specific roles so I'm looking to use a hook with the logic to display when appropriate, the difficulty I'm having is I'm confused as to what element I should be trying to target in the rendered array and any changes I try don't seem to take effect, think I might be going about it the wrong way, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you ever tried Field Permission. I think it'll help to solve your requirements. Check the video tutorial to use that module Drupal 7 Field Permissions Module
