I'd say good fold, there are lots of hands that beat you

Well I have limited knowledge of equity and all that but I mean, he's got 3 big hands to beat you woth there, the ace, the nine, the flush. I think you can rule out the nine its just too unlikely, the flush maybe, but I think the ace is really likely.

A little approach to the equity for those interested.

On the river you have to call a bet of \$2.12 in order to win \$6.36 (\$2.12 in the pot + his bet + your bet).

So your pot odds are \$2.12/\$6.36 = 1/3.

This means in lay terms that you have to be ahead 1/3 of the time to make this call.

You are essentially only ahead of a bluff at this point. So whether it is a good fold depends on how often you think your opponent will bluff.

I think its the right fold. It looks to me like he probably flushed and then tried to get some value for it.

He probably had an ace and the river scared him so he potted. Good fold imo.

Easy fold. You don't beat anything.
