      Final Pot: $23.17.
      Results follow:

      BB shows a flush, ace high(K A).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and jacks(A K).

      BB wins with a flush, ace high(K A).
      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and jacks(A K).

      Im thinking that I should 3-bet the flop instead of just calling. I thought I was ahead since he was a weak player and wanted him to bet the turn.

      I think you can´t get away postflop, so either raising flop and playing for stacks or calling flop and shoving turn is fine play.
      You can also 4-bet pf to 2$ and then put more pressure him being ip.

      Best regards,
