      Small bets indicate that he might have something that has SD value, but he's not willing to play too aggressive with it.

      Can your opponent fold to 3-bet? If yes, it's ok. If not, this hand is hard to play OOP, so you could even call his bet. And if you do 3-bet, make it 0.50 due to bad position.

      On flop you could check/fold or bet/fold, but you shouldn't invest any more money at this hand on further streets.

      Without no equity and just with A high I don´t think you can profitable call him down. I think c/f turn is the best option or if he likes to float you can also barrel on the turn

      best regards,
