      To answer your question, you first need to put your opponent on a range of hands.

      Let's analyze our options anyway.
      1) c/c
      2) bet
      3) c/f

      I think c/f doesn't make any sense when the board is dry. C/C may be an option when we have Ace high but I don't like it too much when we know nothing about the opponent, and also when our Ace high may lose to better Ace highs like AJ/AQ.

      Thus bet seems to be the only option. If villain's range is wider than just AQ/pocketpairs (KQ/KJs/QTs/JTs/suited connectors/AXs), then cbetting this Flop is good cos we can just halfpot and expect to have the required 33% fold equity to break-even.
