      I know I should have raised flop, but what should I do on turn if he called and bet again. clear fold regardless any card?

      I'm fine with the way your played it, might even be a flop fold if he's not c-betting often (read with whiffed overcards). ~4% PFR really looks pretty damn low { 99+/AQs+/AKo }, you're a 2:1 dog preflop against that range and barely better off on that flop.

      If you raise the flop you'll either have to fold getting very good odds or you'll be priced in to call a shove against a range that most likely destroys you. I think you'd just be owning yourself against that guy.

      Hope it helps.
