      UTG raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.75, CO folds, BTN calls $1.75, SB raises to $7.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $5.75, BTN folds

      $128.12 pot ($3.00 rake)
      Final Board: 9 4 T 5 5
      Hero showed J J and won $125.12 ($63.06 net)
      SB showed K Q and won $0.00 (-$62.06 net)

      UTG 19/16/1.0k
      SB 22/19/913 3b 10.3 squeeze sb 10.3 I saw him did 5b with K9s

      On this spot, should I 4b preflop?

      and on flop, should I go allin because his bet was too weak and if I call, he may stop betting with over card or draw

      Preflop: 100bb I am usually backraising here especially vs an aggro squeezer. With 124 bb I think it is highly dependent on dynamics. Since you are capable of having some bluffs here (like you did with the 88 hand), I think it's fine to make it 15$ and call it off especially if villain jams K9s based on your history.

      Flop: Dependent on his barreling frequencies but given that he look so weak here with his small bet I would prefer raising. You can make your raise size even smaller and bluffier looking, maybe something like 15$.
