In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

There is nothing wrong with making up missed obligatory fast on Friday alone, the fast will be valid, but it is Makrooh (disliked) to observe nafl (optional) fasts only on Fridays. Observing fasts only on Friday is prohibited in a hadith, so one day should be added before or after Friday. Similarly, if one accidentally has kept fast on a Friday, it is not Makrooh.

وعن أبي ہریرة -رضي اللہ عنہ- قال: قال رسول اللہ -صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم-: ”لا یصوم أحدکم یوم الجمعة إلا أن یصوم قبلہ أو بعدہ“ متفق علیہ (مشکاة المصابیح: ۱۷۹، باب صیام التطوع، ط: یار ندیم اینڈ کمپنی) سنن الترمذي (3/ 119) قال أبویوسف: جاء حدیث في کراہیتہ إلا أن یصوم قبلہ أو بعدہ، فکان الاحتیاط أن یضمّ إلیہ یومًا آخر (شامي: ۳۳۶/۳، زکریا دیوبند) 

And Allah knows best
