Flop ($1.59) T 9 J (2 Players)

River ($15.09) T 9 J J A (2 Players)
Hero checks, BN bets $8, Hero calls $8

Very few hands with villain but currently 40/13 and has 4bet 88 pre.

Flop play definitely a bit unorthodox for me. I figured it was a flop that I wouldn't normally c-bet so I checked it but then realised I didn't want to give any free cards so raised after he bet. I think it turns my hand a bit face up. Looking back I think I prefer betting it. Any advice on these types of flops, what hands to bet and what to check etc. most welcome.

When he calls I figure  TJ,QJ,KJ,AJ maybe some of the weaker flush and straight draws. I think sets, straights and combo draws would re-raise given the wet board. Turn looks good for me, not sure why my bet has come out so small as I had meant to make it a bit over half pot.

Villain calls again so I'mm thinking he has a Jack now or possibly getting very sticky with a draw which I don't mind obviously.

A on the river felt really gross to me, I figured his most likely J hands are JT or AJ which both have me beaten now, draws aren't calling. I could get some value from KQ if he had chosen to slowplay it but I didn't figure it to be a big part of his range. I felt checking was the best option.

He only bets $8 thankfully and I snap it off, I don't think I can fold for that price.
