This question already has an answer here:

I'd like to know if there is a specific amount of dragons in the game or if they are "generated" randomly? There are "main dragons" and "simple dragons" (dragons that can be killed like simple monsters) in the game story?

There are an infinite numbers of dragons in Skyrim, since most of them respawn, like other creatures.

The number of named "main" dragons are fixed though, though and they are listed in the UESP wiki "Dragon" article. There are more info regarding dragons at the same UESP wiki article.

They are randomly generated, there is no specific amount in game,
