Squash and cucumbers won't flower until they are mature enough so regardless of size, if your plants are ready to flower, they will. Usually the first flowers are male and won't produce fruit but as your plants grow larger they will develop female flowers and fruit. I'd just allow the plants to perform at will. They know best!
