Weird check raise?

Hand analysis:

$200 effective 1/3 live Hero is $440 deep on BTN

Limps to BTN

Hero try's to steal limps with $25 with T8cc

SB calls
CO calls (unknown)

Flop: 843r

SB checks
CO checks
BTN bets $45
SB folds
CO calls $45

*hero assigns a range of 55/66/77 or any set

Turn: Js (brings backdoor flush draw)

CO checks

BTN bets $45 to target assigned range (looking back, I think a check here is much better vs range...I think we're only getting two streets vs that range)

CO check raises to $130

What are we doing and what are we putting him on?

    How many limps to you? Also what suites are on the board?

    Called 25 pre and 45 on the flop so the $130 with $200 effective is his all in bet? Cost you $95 more to win a pot of ($340) if my math is correct. Getting 3.5 to 1 based on the range you gave him mathematically makes it a call. But is he really shoving turn with 55-77? Only 7 combos of sets since you block top set.

    I think i would have to play this based on the player. Is he passive? Is he aggressive? How is his body language? I would ask him if he has a set and if his smile seems genuine = sigh fold.

    Why a so narrow range? Why not 87, 86, 65, 54, 43, A4, etc?

    Explain why this x/r is weird.

    Sounds like the pot is about $80 prelfop. So, SPR of about 2. You basically flop the goods here. Pot is $170 going to the turn, and you bet $45? If you're going to bet this turn at this stack depth, just shove. In fact, just shove this turn blind--the Js is essentially a brick to this board.

    In addition to the notes above, I think that this presents perhaps your greatest in-hand error:
