This typical behavior for a squash plant. They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. The male blossoms typically drop from the plant and seemingly disappear. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.

If you continue getting flowers (including females) but no fruit, the issue is pollination. You may need to hand pollinate to make up for it. This article will help with hand pollination: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/pollinate-squash-by-hand.htm
