      Villains first hand at table so I'm totally in the dark here. I didn't want to call as I felt implied odds weren't great and therefore better to fastplay my equity.

      I think you played it fine.. On this board the straight would have no implied odds for you and the flush would be quite obvious. I am more liekly to call with the nutflush when there are more high flush draws possible but here there is only J high flush which is sort of ahead with a pair anyway and the Q high flushdraw because you block T and K + 9 h is on the flop. Raise and getting it in is the best play here.
