NL5z AJo BU v BB in 3B pot: played too strong / weak?

V is 22/19/8 after 30ish hands only.

What's my line here and where does my thinking go wrong?

PF, is 4B/fold an option? Didn't really consider it then..

In my limited understanding, this flop hits us harder or is at least equalizing V's and our range and I raised V's small range bet OTF to not let him lay himself the right odds for all draws, charge them properly and see where we are at.

I feel V's call OTF is quite strong, so after Q for flush and straight draws hit OTT and V could very well still hold QQ+, I elect to check. Or should we jam for our Jd which gives us still some equity in many situation when we are behind?

V's shove OTR was looking too strong to call, given that we as well could have value raised JJ/88/(55) or semi-bluff raised with a flush draw/T9s and elected to trap OTT. At the same time, don't we have to call here with SPTK? I still can't see too many hands which V turns into a bluff but at the same time wonder if we have enough bluff catchers in our range if we fold that. Bit lost..
