      I'd bet turn and check/call the river.

      As played I'd call his riverbet, you showed a lot of weakness by checking turn and river, he could easily be bluffing here.

      He probably doesn´t have 6 or 9, so you then have to put him on other pp or flush draw, if you decide to bet on the turn. But why then check/call river? If you bet 4$ on the turn, don´t think that busted flushdraw would bet river.
      i think I would bet/fold with JJ+, but 99 seems too weak to bet.

      Actually I'd have played that hand completely different. I'd just limp PF and check that flop.

      But there are flush and straight draws there, and you are OOP. It's not an easy hand to play I think.
      I'd check/call river after betting turn because busted draws won't call a raise but may raise themselves.
      Of course I'm completely disregarding pot control here, but as I said I would've taken a more conservative approach PF and on the flop, so I don't find myself in situations like this, so for me it's difficult to say what would've been better to do here.

      But the way you played, you definetly have to call his bet on the river, you showed a lot of weakness and you're getting good odds there.

      I fire a second barrel on the turn - he may be on a draw or have a weaker pair.
