I am unable to solve this challenge

I've made a function that creates brand new product names using artificial intelligence.

I have a problem though, people keep on adding product ideas that are too short. It makes the suggestions look bad.

Can you please raise a ValueError if the product_idea is less than 3 characters long? Thanks in advance!

def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) < 3
        raise ValueError("Character length should be more than 3")
    return product_idea + "inator"

You're missing a " : ".

Other than that, it looks fine. :)
