      I would have bet/fold turn instead of betting/calling which makes you call with a hand that is way behind.

      Also, even if you don't have enough hands on CO to get conclusions, his W$SD is alarming, so seeing him coldcalling everything would make me wonder a little bit.

      Your flop raise is way too tiny also. You have an overpair here. It both a strong hand, and very vulnerable to turn and river cards, so protect it! There are 4 opponents, eventual possibility of a straight in the playing zone, so you need protection against this (as well as against the possible A or K of the turn/river). So minimum 3/4 pot. I would bet pot on the flop.

      bet/fold flop (with a nearly potsize bet)
      bet/fold turn (with a halfpot size bet)
      would be my line.

      On the flop you need to bet more for value

      On the turn you can just check fold.

      Bet 0.7 on the flop for value (and I think I actually fold to a checkraise).

      As played check turn and give up. When 3 people call it's extremely likely at least one of them has a 9 - a bet has negative EV.
      Once you bet and there's a raise you can be 100% sure to be up against either 9x or a full house, so you should definitely fold.
