Which pocket square fold looks the best in your opinion?

For years I've not worn one and always felt I was missing something. I feel it really completes the "look" but I'm new to this so please help. My style is conservative with a slight subtle edge(Think Ari Gold shopping at Brooks Brothers) Anyhow , which fold do you think suits me or which do you prefer in general and how do you fold it? Does the fold vary for a place in time in the day?

IMO the best look for me is a bit of a stuff but with no edges showing so it ends up being a slightly three dimensional triangle/semi circle shape or an understated pouf.

I once did all the folds and tried all things to make them look just right but I've come to the conclusion that a stuff with some random darts is the only way I want them to look unless I am at a formal event where one only needs a simple fold in white. Rarely do I see a square on the street here in my town so I am the only person one can compare with and, by default, my style is the correct answer.

I don't think there is just one best. But, what never looks right to me is the saw tooth fold. It is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

TV fold for linen or cotton
Poof or whatever it's called for silk

If it's white, I prefer square. Pretty much any other square gets stuffed in my pocket.

I use the "stuff and go" fold.
