      I dont have much stats about opponent,but he seems to be normal,
      he did not raise preflop,so I think its not QQ + but 22-JJ,AJs+ .
      on the turn,I got raised and I did not know if I should fold or not,but raise size was not much so I called.
      and on the river,he bets 2/3 pot and then folded.
      if I fold this,I should have folded on the turn? how should i play?

      Classic fold. If he had an overpair, he would raise on the flop. I don't see anything else that he would call the flop and raise the turn unless he is trapping with a set or made a straight. I think you can bet/fold the turn.

      If you have 10% equity, how big should your pot odds be?

      If you do not know, please restudy the pot odds article because this is a big leak you have
