      I'm reading a book which is advanced pot limit omaha

      and there are a word "wrap" often, but I am not sure what it means.
      for example,
      you have Q heart,9 club,8 heart,6 spade.
      and the flop comes

      J diamond ,10 spade,2 diamond.
      and the author says " I've got a weak end 17 card wrap on a two flush board "

      in that case, what are that 17 -card?

      if someone can explain, please help me with it!

      Wrap is when you have at least three cards in our hand that helps you to draw to a straight which gives you at least 13 outs. Note that an inside straight draw with three hole card in middle does not give you a wrap and only 9 outs.

      17 is the number of outs to hit your straight. And it is also good to count the nut outs to evaluate the strength of draw.

      Let see glossary in Pot Limit Omaha Poker - Big Play Strategy by Jeff Hwang

      Wrap/Wraparound: a straight draw bigger than the standard eight-card straght draws in holdem; unique to Omaha poker.

      And book Advanced Pot Limit Omaha page 528 has definition of wraparound as well :P
