      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:club: A:heart:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BTN raises to 9 BB, fold, BB raises to 23 BB, fold, fold

      Is it ok to fold vs them?
      If bb would be aggro 4bettor I would shove AK here.

      You basically know nothing about BB, right? First hand with him. In such a scenario I think folding AK is fine, especially since you are CO not BU (makes quite a difference) plus his sizing is on the larger side than what is most common. I don't think you get exploited if you fold or that you exploit them if you shove.
