linecheck 4b pot AQ UTG vs CO

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (6 Players) BN: $9.38
SB: $12.47
BB: $22.06
UTG: $10.00 (Hero)
MP: $10.00
CO: $14.66
both players unknown
Preflop ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q A
Hero raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO raises to $0.90, 2 folds, BB calls $0.80, Hero raises to $2.55, CO calls $1.65, BB folds
First decision point I'm not 100% sure about. Cold 4betting vs two complete unknowns doesn't seem great but I don't think I can profitably call in these positions and folding seems a bit too tight. That's why in the end I decided to turn this into a bluff preflop.
Flop ($6.05) 9 9 K
Hero checks, CO checks
I thought a second about range-cbetting small here which might be the theory-optimal play but then figured this guy either has Kx+ and is not going to fold no matter what, an underpair which I can easily get to fold later on and basically hardly any bluffs I might make an incorrect x/f against.
Turn ($6.05) 9 9 K 2
Hero bets $2.70, CO calls $2.70
Since I have pretty much the best blockers (AK, QQ, KQs) I decided to 2barrel bluff from this point on. I have all KK and maybe even some more combinations of AA, AK in my range which I'd check for the same exploitative reasons OTF.
River ($11.45) 9 9 K 2 J
Hero checks, CO bets $5.47, Hero folds
...but in the end chickend out on this card which seems pretty much like the nut-worst card in the deck. Do you like this at all or would you have played it differently?
