      --- I was worried they might have a set but I didn't really want to give up my QQ here, I don't know what I should have done in this hand at all, on the flop, turn or river. Thoughts?

      Since it is 3-way you can consider b/f flop, especially when player is tight and passive. Right now you´re against player who seems rather be passive, so if you don´t think he would ever c/r 3-way there overpairs or draws, then b/f would be best option.
      Once you call flop then I thinking calling down is a little better than folding turn or river. Since then you should have some kind of read that he can c/r flop weaker hands than QQ
