It's Big $5.50 with 10mins slow structure.

Big question should I have raised on river but there is no straight possibilty. So only hand he can have is a flush and I am not sure if its better then me or worst.

Also did I play the hand fine all the way?

Given how the action has played out, it seems pretty likely that villain has a flush, seeing that he check/called flop and then donked out multi-way when the flush arrived.

With villain getting amazing pot odds preflop, I think nearly all flushes are possible, ranging from A-high to 5-high, but I'd give more weight to the higher flushes as these would be more likely to want two big streets of value, so just calling is probably best as a lower variance play, even though raising the river may or may not be marginally +Chip EV
