      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5d 5s).

      CO wins with three of a kind, sevens(7c 7h).

      i was thinking when the 7d came on the turn that he had some kind of draw with a top pair maybe or was this an easy fold?

      If villain is a reg he has you beat almost every time there. Even if he is not a regular when he raises the turn I tend to believe you are beat and should fold.
      The 7 completes a lot of FD+SD and you have 10 outs most of the time which gives you ~20% chance to catch a full house on the river.

      Flop is fine, but as played I think folding turn is better. You bet solid and unless he's maniac he will never raise you with one pair/two pair hands or AcX - most likely it's straight or flush. Folding set is tough, but on such a board there are way too many bad combos for us.
      Thereby I tend to c/c turn and ship it in if we boat up and c/f if we miss.

      it is very hard to flop flush at holdem. So I think you can bet/shove there, since players should raise for value worse hands, like T9, 7x8c, maybe AcTx and so on.
      So I think you have enough equity to put money in the pot, rather than b/f your very strong hand
