      His cbet looks weak against 2 Opponents OOP.
      Since the V is a regular i wouldn't fear any strdraws from UTG2 raise so there is no reason to raise. +you also have position.
      slowplay and hope he bets the turn so you can raise and have a big enough pot to ship river.

      being last player ip would also just call flop, since you can´t really raise there with strong draws and you don´t raise with pp-s, so players would mostly put you on sets+ your range looks a lot weaker if you just call his flop c-bet.
      If you want you can always raise on any turn and then play for stacks
