      No I like calling on the flop, since your hand could easily be good. (If you don´t want to see barrels then you could turn your hand into bluff and make 14$ re-raise, because he´d now fold A high hands, but shove/call with overpairs, top pairs or flushdraws.
      As played: you should call the turn, this could easily be blocking bet and if river is blank then he'd probably check is A high down.
