      It's fine, you can also call especially if BB isn't squeeze-happy and/or is fishy (to keep him in) but most of the value in that postflop is to be able to check/call bets from bluffs/worse hands, which is quite lowered at microstakes since people don't bluff/valuebet thin enough.

      So 3betting instead "with blockers", just to pick up the dead money either preflop or postflop after they call/fold with some speculative hand is fine. When you get 4-bet your hand is doing terrible against his range even if he happens to be a bit wide with stuff like AQ/22-JJ, so really folding is the only option barring further reads.

      Hope it helps.
