Not very well, considering that he turns around and rushes back to Bilbo with the intent to brutally murder him.
He becomes very mad, furious even, and suddenly very suspicious of Bilbo and what he's got in his pocketses. I might even dare to insinuate that Gollum was perhaps a bit frightened at the realization that he had lost his Ring after all of the years he'd had possession of it.

Gollum/Smeagol (and his cousin Deagol) was one of the River Folk, which is pretty much a hobbit, though a different kind. Thus, he is small like Frodo and Sam. -sam-is-my-hero-
