This is a personal preference thing. I suggest experimenting with a lot of different grips. There are a few standard grips, though.

Also, same as in full guard. Do I hold double under hooks? or hold around the head and arms?
I can get into attacks from any of these if you want. Still, play around with them. Developing a good guard is about finding what works for your body type, flexibility, mindset and personal level of comfort. There's no single answer.
- Both hands behind the head.
- One hand on the back of the head, one hand on the arm.
- Both hands on one arm.
- One overhook, one underhook.
- Double underhooks.
- One arm free, the other hooking under the opponent's knee.
