      I think you can bet/fold turn for value against draws and Jx.

      As played with checking back turn it's hard to say because you played it passively, but I think folding is better option. You need to have like 28% equity, so it all comes down to question - whether he'll bet Jx hands here. If yes - you have needed equity. If not - you don't have it. In vacuum I don't mind folding given the fact some draws completed and it's a 3bet pot so he should have picked up stronger range than in single raised pot, so I exclude hands like AJo and it pretty much comes down to:

      Board: Jd 9d 6h 9s 8d

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 14.286% 14.29% 00.00% 3 0.00 { QhQs }
      Hand 1: 85.714% 85.71% 00.00% 18 0.00 { KK+, JJ, AdKd, AdQd, AJs, AdTd }

      But again - any information about villain helps here.

      Good luck!
