|It could be that the female blossoms weren't pollinated. This sometimes happens early in the season, before the male blossoms appear. It can also happen during cool spells when pollinators are less active. If you use row covers to protect your crops,be sure to remove row covers when the squash bloom to give entry to pollinators.
