      Too passive? I got scared by his preflop raise and his bet on the Turn.

      I think calling pf is fine, since likely he would not really get all-in too often worse hands like TT/JJ, but rather QQ+/Ak that you´re beind crushed or dominated.
      If you want then you can play flop passively and just call, but you shouldn´t really afraid turn c/rai, that you should go as strong hand as QQ to pot control line and if he checks river then he would likely c/c or c/f, but you shouldn´t be afraid you´re beat by KK/AA or flush, so I´d make 10$ valuebet and expect to get called 88-JJ
