Cam help

Got a cam and matching lifted kit for my motor and found out today I have roller but bought flat.. They are indeed both hydronic. What do I do? Install they with out the retaining bar? Or go out and find other ones. It's a stage one cam

Up to you really. Flat tapped can go in a roller motor but roller cam can't go into non roller motor with modification

Return the cam.
You will lose power with a flat tappet cam (more friction, less aggressive lobes) and you always run the risk of lobe failure.
