      His bet sizes are quite large. Given you have the Ks and the Qs is on the board he can't have that many nut flush draws, unless he calls with all suited aces.

      However a nut flush draw is almost flipping with you on this flop anyway.

      I also doubt that 50nl rush players are raising here for value with AQ which tends to tell me this range is either a pure bluff, a rare draw or the nuts (sets).

      To answer your question I would have a hard time calling this turn. Even if his range included some draws you are dead versus his value range. On top of it he is betting very large which is indicative of trying to protect versus draws (from weak/tight/passivish players).

      I also wouldn't mind folding the flop without any reads. In the best case scenario you are flipping (vs draw), getting small value vs a small bluff that doesn't put more money in the pot, or losing a full stack without much of a redraw (although we have the backdoor 2nd nut flush for 5% extra equity).

      He is never bluffing that spot,s o he either has there likely A high flushdraw, sometimes two pair (Q7) or set that afraid flush.
      I think folding flop generally is fine if you don´t plan shoving on blank turn. Since you called flop I think you can call that turn card. He should have still his fd in his range that he is overbet shoving to force you out
