Year 3 here. Lateraled from a boutique firm, I heard people talking behind my back negatively, saying I dont catch up with the firm culture (it's V20). It's a small firm of 12 (in Asia), and already heard it from 2 different sources. Should I leave?

No. Year 3 is early, plenty of time to catch up with and surpass your peers substantively if that’s what you want. Not sure what to tell you about cultural fit, but I’d try and give it at least a year, people (or you) may come around as yall get to know each other better.
