      I'm not the fan of 3betting such a pocket pairs, but if you do that, make it bigger - like ~0.21$ in this case.

      Given the fact you made 3bet, but made it small it could invite him to call with much more marginal holdings, but anyway flop hits his 3bet calling range and by betting you still fold out mostly worse hands, but you can just cbet flop and give up on any further action just because it's your chance to keep aggression and win the pot and it would be a bit awkward if he would bet turn after your flop check and you would have to fold it as you can't call anything much in this situation and you didn't even try to push him off his bluffy hands.

      Good luck!
