      He could obv have the flush or bluffing without sd value. I can't see any worse Qx hand valuebetting, so I would play bet/fold on the river.
      In my opinion calling this river is -ev against unknown opponents. If you know that he is aggro you can check the river with the intention to snapcall.

      I'd c-bet bigger on the flop, lots of draws and worse Qx he can call with.

      Turn is fine.

      Check/calling the river doesn't make much sense, we only beat Qx and it's dead scary out there so only the worse villains would actually bet it, compared to the numerous boats/flushes most people would certainly bet with. If you think he can call again with Qx despite the board being ugly, blockbet/fold it, otherwise you can check/fold.

      Hope it helps.
