Well the only thing that can have you beat is trips, two pair or maybe AK, A6, etc. We doubt he had aces, so he may well have had the pocket 6s or 2s, especially since he didnt bet much preflop. Regardless of anything else, there really isnt very much info to be had here and you were correct imo because the pot was so small. Maybe he hit two pair and was afraid of the flush or something (that is what a fishier player would probably do raising allin like that). I think you did the right thing though. Why bother to risk that much for such a small pot and really no info out there.

I'd like a bigger raise preflop. We're going to be out of position for the whole hand, and we'd be very happy just taking the pot down preflop. I'd bump it up to between 3.50 and 4.50.

Yeah, I'd fold.
It's a really suspicious play, but I don't think he'd risk a full buy-in with something worse than TPTK, which has you dominated.

With the absence of stats, I'd take the conservative route and fold.

If he was making this move with $20, then I'd call.

Bet a lot more on the flop, too. The pot is $7.50, there is a flush draw and you are out of position against two opponents. $2 is way too small, make it $5 or $6 at least.
