      Stats on villain:
      Vpip\pfr\3bet - 22\14\6.8 38 hands (small sample i know)

      Was this a good spot to make a bluff?

      I didn't contibet the flop because i considered his hand might be JJ since he
      called my 3bet rather than 4betting.
      When another J shows up i am pretty sure JJ wasn't the hand he was holding.
      maybe 99,TT or AQs?

      Is there an error in my thought process?

      Preflop 3betting is fine.

      I don't really mind checking back the flop here against an unknown villain.

      As played on the flop, I prefer checking the turn as well though. I doubt he's going to fold a better hand and there's no point in betting against AQ here since we do beat this hand and it's not likely that he's going to call here.
