      I would fold preflop to his minraise from utg especially if the players behind are aggressive.

      As played I just call his flop bet and re-evaluate turn cause I don't want to play for a big pot multiway with a mediocre made hand.

      calling flop and then evaluating turn seems ok line
      Don´t like raise/folding in 4-way pot, since if he bets then he doesn´t have air and if he shoves or 3-bets he can also do it with KQ+sets and draws. So turing your hand into bluff is not the best there.
