      Your 4bet is too small. Make it 2.5x which is which is about $15

      That way on the flop the pot is bigger aswell which makes your decision easier - the pot is $31 and you have $35 left, so you can just shove right away or bet/call to like $25. Why bet/call? Well, because you still have a lot of equity here with a gutshot + overcards (unless villain has KK or AA) and because that gives him a chance to try to bluff you aswell.

      As played, after your cbet on the flop you actually have a call. You need about 35% equity to make the call, and if we give him the range AA-TT (which is pretty tight and doesn't include bluffs) you have 36,5%. Add in some random bluffs and lower pockets and it's an easy call.
