      Unless you have very strong reads here about villain's passivity, you should never fold here for such great odds. And when the opponent makes such a small raise, I think there's a good chance that he is either doing this with some gutshot straight draw bluffs, as well as some worse AX hands like AT/AQ.

      Folding here is a pretty big mistake. You are getting really good pot odds of 5/27.4 = <20%. I think your equity vs his raising range is going to be 45-50% at the very least.
