It’s definitely not cheating, but it isn’t right to go behind your boyfriends back. That being said, it also isn’t right for your boyfriend to tell you who to be friends and who not to be friends with. If you were friends with this guy before you were with your boyfriend then he needs to accept it and be okay with it. Trust is very important in any relationship. Be honest with your boyfriend and tell him how you feel. If he really cares for you he will trust and understand where you are coming from. Have you tried to hang out with your boyfriend and best friend together? Maybe if he sees your best friend isn’t a bad guy he will be okay with you hanging out with him. Good luck.
