      pot controlling is not bad here . depending how aggressive or lose he is you can opt to bet or not . think about the range of hands he will call another bet from you in order you determine you can get more value with a bet .
      i dont mind beting because usualy you will charge draws and you will be able to check behind river because most of the time when you bet and they call they will check river to you.
      so you get the same value as check/ turn and bet river ( or call river if beted to you ) but you charge him for his drawing hands
