Any advice on what to do in this situation?

Did I folded correctly? He probably had some pocket pair.

Not a bad beat folding, but I give a comment on the betting line.

Hero utg open is then over called mp then 3-bet (a bit small) then hero raise (click back)? Your out of position so I may raise it up again very big with such good hand?

The game looks like 1c/2c full ring so high variance of players in the pool but you seem to be doing well with nearly 2 stacks so now I go back to think maybe -

1) a bigger open size utg to 4x pre flop
2) a bigger 4-bet if over call and the small 3-bet

And at these stakes I'd let it go on the flop. And your bet was so small here you can be bluffed so I don't see Hero flop bet as value or a bluff.
