Faucet trouble???

Hi,
I have a problem with my 2 handle Lav faucet.The hot has plenty of pressure,but the cold side has trickle? Aerator not blocked as hot side flows fine.I don't believe any shut offs were touched...Any ideas? Only clue is this started a couple days before the water heater let go and started leaking.that got replaced.What do you recommend for a fix?thank you

Have you tried disconnecting the feed line to the cold and see if the pressure is good at the disconnect?

This is possible. When I was redoing the water supply lines within the house (copper to Pex manifold), I had a small piece of undissolved bread get stuck in the one faucet. It happens.

Yes, most likely debris got stuck in the cold water shutoff valve or the cold water faucet itself.
