Thank you for your question. It is challenging to diagnose a plant problem without photos, but here are two possibilities. First is the weather: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/mother-nature-may-need-help-pollinate-squash-cucumbers

Second is the soil: https://hnr.k-state.edu/extension/info-center/common-pest-problems/common-pest-problem-new/tomato-blossom-end-rot.pdf

If you want to send clear photos, I can try to identify which condition your squash have. Thanks!
