Not sure there was anything that would have worked, but shoving might have....
Exactly DJ, realizing a flush is "possible" with the flop of 2 of same suit, your high straight may be VERY vulnerable if you allow them to continue in the hand. A 1/2 pot or pot sized bet by you will likely be called.
You likely have the best hand with A to 10 cards at this point and thus "anything less than an all-in bet" after the flop is likely to be called by him, thus putting you in a 'bad decision position' with the turn or river card. I suggest an "All-in" for you after the flop to make him fold and not fish for his flush draw.
