Yeah, you need to raise this to get value from KJ. Preflop, you're a big favorite over KJ, so you pass up a street of value by just limping.
I figured it was KJ or a set of 3's, since you posted this. But really, raise this preflop. You will make up the $ you lose in this hand by raising & winning big pots most of the time against KJ.
