I have cantaloupe plants that had bloomed with yellow small flowers. Am I suppose remove the blossoms for the fruit to grow or not? I don't want to kill my fresh produce.
Hardiness Zone: 6a

The flowers are what turns into fruit, just like apple blossoms turn into apples, etc.

Leave the flowers alone. It has to bloom and when the bees have pollenated the flowers they later fall off and the fruit grows on that stem.

Not every flower will produce fruit. There are both male and female flowers, and the female ones will develop fruit after the bees pollinate them.
