      Hard to say without knowing something about opp, but I tend to play my top pair against unknowns with betting for value line unless something forces me to think otherwise.

      I don't think he's raising AQ or worse Aces often enough to make playing for stacks profitable, he may have AT/AJ/KQ, but he may have J+FD so I like calling down flop raise and see turn action. When he bets big - I tend to fold.

      My assumptions are based on opp who is not slowplaying their hands a lot and are not overaggro, as there are players that like to call their two pair+ almost always and if such a players raises it smells like FD or something weak and 3betting is reasonable, but I like taking safe line against unknown. If he's passive and nitty you may just fold flop as his range is so narrow and if he bets - he does that for value for sure.
