Bet turn FD or check to save equity? BvB

Blinds: $0.02/$0.05 (6 Players) BN: $3.29
SB: $5.07
BB: $6.59 (Hero)
UTG: $2.97
MP: $4.89
CO: $4.95
Preflop ($0.07) Hero is BB with 6 T 9 Q
4 folds, SB raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.10
Villain raises first in 4/9, c-bets 71%. General stats 31/21/1 260 hands
Flop ($0.30) Q 5 4
SB bets $0.17, Hero calls $0.17
Top pair and many good things can happen
Turn ($0.64) Q 5 4 A
SB checks, Hero checks
One of my reason for calling the flop was to steal a turn sometimes. Here the added equity made me check back. I think it's better to bet. He rarely goes for a check-raise here (0/6 for villain XR turn). Against a more aggressive opponent I would absolutely check.
River ($0.64) Q 5 4 A 2
SB checks, Hero checks
I think a 70% pot bet works enough for it to be probable.
Final Pot SB wins and shows a pair of Queens.
SB wins $0.62
Rake is $0.02

It seems to me that we can make better hands fold here. It seems hard for him to call a 2-barrel and we do hit. In short:

  1. Bet to steal pot or check behind
  2. If check behind turn, we surely must bet this river yeah?
