This advice, although obvious, nevertheless, needs to be said about it, because many players do not adhere to the probability of getting an overpair on the flop with a pocket pair: QC - 23% QQ - 43% JJ - 59% TT - 71% 99 - 81% As you now understand, with QC you will see an ace on the flop about 1 time out of 4! And the lower your couple is, the more often this will happen. That is, you need to clearly understand that when you are dealt a pocket pair (with the exception of AA), you should very often expect to see an overcard on the flop, turn or river. Most often you will need to play through a check / call or even a check / fold in some cases. And raises are out of the question

I think it is more important to play starting from the opponent's hand, the output of the overcard does not mean that it has strengthened the opponent's hand, and playing less aggressively when the overcard is released is too valuable information that an attentive player will use against you.
It is better not to create too large banks with medium hands and even top pairs without getting a boost and with a dangerous flop.

Well, these are fair things. This happens often. But don't be afraid of high cards. Check-call is reasonable. We can always turn our hand into a bluff with the arrival of an ACE, for example.
