How many seeds in an onion flower?

the head can hold many individual flowers so do you mean the entire head or an actual individual flower?
if you mean the head it would be from a few to a few hundred or even a thousand or more (some of my larger onions get very large flower heads with many many flowers).
i haven't looked it up to know for sure so i don't know if this varies by cultivar or type of onion.
my guess is that each flower of the common onions i grow has six seeds.
now i'm going to go look it up. :)
i'm not having much luck on exact numbers so i will pull one out of the air. :) it will be a multiple of three. so three, or six seeds per flower seems to be about what i can remember.
these two links have some interesting information:
