The simplistic way to add 3 dot popup menu is by using flutter Appbar actions:[] properties.

A Appbar actions properties is a array that accept list of widget, In our case we are using PopupMenuButton to show PopupMenuItem.

        centerTitle: true,
        title: Text("App Dropdown Menu"),
        actions: [
                 //list if widget in appbar actions
                PopupMenuButton(
                            icon: Icon(Icons.menu),  //don't specify icon if you want 3 dot menu
                            color: Colors.blue,
                            itemBuilder: (context) => [
                                     PopupMenuItem<int>(
                                                     value: 0,
                                                     child: Text("Setting",style: TextStyle(color: Colors.white),),
                                        ),
                            ],
                   onSelected: (item) => {print(item)},
        ),

        ],
),//appbar end

Above App bar in actions properties which accept widgets, there we are placing PopupMenuButton Widget, In PopMenuButton there is a required property i.e. itemBuilder.

itemBuilder(): is a context that builds list of PopupmenuItem.

PopupMenuItem widget has 2 propeties i.e. value & child

value: is used to set an Id to a menuItem, so that when the user selects the menu item, we can detect which menu item was clicked by the user.

child: this is just to show a widget like Text in the particular menuItem.
