What is Delay C-bet in Poker?

A Delay Continuation Bet refers to betting on the turn after checking back on the flop as the preflop aggressor.

For example, you raise on the button, and the big blind calls. The big blind checks on the flop and you check back. On the turn, if the big blind checks again and you bet, you’re delay c-betting.
