I don't think PuTTY has that capability.
If your droplet has UFW firewall on it you could try
sudo ufw allow from my.home.ip.address
sudo ufw enable
This would allow all traffic from home computer. Did this when building and testing my droplets.

Very specific rule would be
sudo ufw allow from my.home.ip.address to any port 22 proto tcp

Note: If you changed you default ssh port adjust as needed.

You could then expand on it as needed. Opening any required ports to world later. 80, 443 etc

You can't deny all IP SSH connections to your droplet at your workstation at Putty. Basically you will deny all public IP SSH connections at your droplet except your IP address.
