      raise flop, A is a scare card for his PP's and he might fold them very easily. You dont want to give him a freecard if he has overcards. and if you call flop and raise turn it gets more expensive, and if he had an ace for example and a :diamond: came on turn it could cut the action, since you just called flop.

      And raising flop gets you a free river most times, if he had an ace he'd probably just call flop and check turn then you could CBH turn and see the river.

      Well, it all depends on the opponent. Is he capable of making big mistakes if you hit? Is he capable of coming over the top when you raise the flop? If not, then raising flop is a valid option. If the first thing is true calling makes more sense. Is he capable of multibarelling? Then I like call flop/raise turn.....decide yourself, there is more then one valid option.

      I'd say it could be a nh! :)
