      Is folding at the river an option? I got to call 4.70$, I should be ahead enough times so it is +EV imo.
      Any other things misplayed?

      It's fine. If we had a bigger sample or some more solid read on villain we could think about pitching our overpair there sometimes because loose passive villains usually don't get excited by just Qx when the bet isn't for their entire stack, but by default I don't really think you should fold it.

      Even if he happens to have two pairs we can hit a set or a counterfeit card on the river, we also have a gutshot that is likely good against everything except straights, it should comfort us in our choice to go broke when in doubt against a relatively unknown villain that could still sometimes have Qx.

      Hope it helps.
