      In multiway pots it's quite better to check/call or check/fold Pocketpairs on such boards because there aren't many hands that will bet this flop.After the preflop agressor checks he quite often doesn't have any kind of hand here and so you are betting against the MP which has position over you.On turn he might be holding some flushdraws,pocketpairs lower than yours or gutshots which he might think he can bet and make you rid of your hand but with his bet sizing i don't think he represents this any more.So i'd like a fold on the turn but this could have been changed with your flop action if you have check/called because he isn't likely to barrel the turn with a or weak hand most of the times.

      I like your flop bet
      You have showdown value, very likely that UTG and MP would c/f and you take pot down often enough
      Getting that odds I´d call him down. He can have there a lot of missed flushdraws or valuebetting with worse pp-s
