It depends on the situation (including stack sizes) and what you're trying to accomplish, but 4-bets are usually around 2.5x the size of the 3-bet, but a little bit bigger if it's a cold 4-bet and/or you're OOP.

e.g. If you opened for 3bb, and someone 3-bet to 9bb, then something like 22bb would be fine if you're in position, and maybe 24bb if the 3-bettor has position on you.
If someone else opened 3bb and got 3-bet to 9bb, and you woke up with kings in the BB, you might go with 25bb as a cold 4-bet, as the pot is already quite big and you don't want both players calling.
