      Raise the flop if opponent is not too agressive in these spots.

      can u explain why calling flop is better than raising. if we just call and the turn is heart and he again bet 1/2 or 2/3 pot how to react then ?

      You don`t want to build a big pot here only with TPTK in deep vs deep. And opp might give himself huge FE and good implied and come over the top with a draw and you can`t do anything but fold then.

      I also like calling there. If heart comes against unknown I would raise there even a 1/2 pot trying to represent the flush. Against such a small bet easy raise/fold. And by not raising you are not risking getting into ugly spots and keep the pot smalish. You don`t really want to play big pots with this kind of hands.

      BogdanDin7 answered why calling flop is better than raising, if turn is heart and he bets big then likely we can fold or call and fold to river bet, but heart is also scared card for him, so likely he doesn´t bet too many times with worse hand that yours on the turn when flushdraw completes.
