    For purposes of variety, sure.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    You should do Incline Bench Press instead of flat dumbel flyes, doing incline it hits the clavicular head more, developing the upper chest.

    You should incorporate both in your routine. They both targetsdifferent areas of your chest. that is if your looking for symmetry.

    You could try a superset of incline dumbell press with incline flyes? That will get you a pump

    I would definitely say do both the flat bench and the incline. But why are you just doing the three? I would add in some flies and maybe super set it would the db presses. I would also make the db a burn out if not super setting it. Maybe pyramiding up and then drop setting or throwing in negatives. Just my two cents.

    Have them both in your routine, starting with the heaviest, in most cases this is flat.

    I tend to work out more of the "top" of my chest because that's my hardest part of my chest to grow.

    I do hit ALL - incline, flat, decline, flies, you name it I do it, but I always hit my top chest more than the rest and a bit longer.

    It's really what works for you, you will figure out what works and what doesn't work.. as yoru body will grow differently than anyone here.

    Keep notes on what works, and doesn't work.. then you will have a solid routine once you know what works.

    well i wouldnt say you have to change your workout around, just add some incline work to it. you didnt attach any pics of yourself, but i'm gonna guess that your upper chest isnt as developed as it should and could be. remember that the bigger your upper chest is, the bigger your chest looks in general. plus it's not good to neglect any part of the muscle. i usually start my chest workouts with incline presses and flyes, then i'll move on to my flat work and every other week i do decline. i dont like to do decline too much because my lower chest grows a lot faster than the upper and i prefer to have a huge upper chest, in my opinion of course. so dont go changing your entire workout around big man, just throw in some inline work and hit that upper chest.

    Switch to incline and add in dips so that you're hitting your upper, middle and lower chest with 3 different exercises.
