      general answer to your question is b/f turn, since consider you raised UTG and he is on the BB I don´t really expect him to c/r turn too many times worse hands than yours
      But if you have reason to think player might be bluffing there then calldown is better. This way he can shove river his air

      +1 to what Kaitz said.

      Without reads I prefer a fold here because it's hard to imagine worse hands raising here. I don't think overpairs will take this line (TT-JJ for example). As it's also hard to imagine him floating OOP with garbage just to raise your strong perceived range.
