Toilet question!

I have a toilet tank that as soon as I flush it the flapper goes down and barely any water goes through, we need to be holding the handle open so more water can go through. What seems to be wrong with it?
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Check the length of the chain/rod. It should be just a bit of slack when down..and excess chain should be trimmed off. Is this a new install?

Old rubber flappers can also "loosen up" where they used to be firmer and cause issues.
