      I'd pot it and fold to reraise as you did. You are probably not playing vs straight but vs 2 pair. You'd like the board to pair so you have higher 2 pair but any of the card that could pair would give BB a FH, probably.
      If he is very loose pf I'd try to get it allin instead, he could be playing flushdraw here or only one pair.

      You have to continuation bet to protect but when he check raises you are behind, since you are in positionand its only a min raise maybe you can call as you have a gs, bdfd and since his most likely holding is two pair you have your own two pair outs but it's risky.

      I´d never fold against min-raise on that board, there are a lot of draws and pair+draws, so I´d call flop, call turn and fold river ui.
      Since BB is middlestack, then shove is probably better than flatcall.
