      no, but you have to raise it to feel where you're at.

      you stand to lose a much bigger pot if you flatcall and villain fires 2 more bullets...

      as it stands it's unlucky he played his set/straight/whatever with a flatcall on the flop, but after your flopbet you can still fold to big resistance unimproved.

      with the turncard, it becomes very hard to get away from

      I don't like the flop raise. Call and reevaluate the turn. By raising, you kick out all worse hands, but don't get many better hands to fold.
