Bad turn OOP in 3-bet pot

Blinds: $0.10/$0.25 (6 Players) BN: $43.15
SB: $58.35 (Hero)
BB: $114.92
UTG: $31.87
MP: $25.00
CO: $12.50
Preflop ($0.35) Hero is SB with J T Q 9
UTG folds, MP raises to $0.60, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.05, BB folds, MP calls $1.45
Flop ($4.35) 5 T J
Hero bets $4.17, MP calls $4.17
Turn ($12.69) 5 T J 9
Hero checks, MP bets $8.51

So my gut tells me that the proper way to deal with this situation, where we flop top two and then turn a good draw but hate the 3rd club, is to simply check with our flushes for balance. It also seems likely, though it's no guarantee, that villain would raise his FDs on the flop given the lower SPR in a 3-bet pot. That should weaken his calling range and thus weaken his bet here. But then again who knows? Basically just guessing that this point.
