      I figured with that turn card that if he was drawing to anything at all, he's probably got it. Is it better to check/fold or check/call the turn rather than what I did? I did not want to show weakness on the turn practically inviting him to steal the pot away.

      The trouble is if you make the play that you did you can't be sure you folded the best hand. You might think you did, but there are a few hands he might minfishraise you with here that you have crushed.

      Its a good fold.

      Villain has a very hard time to bluff raise this turn. Straight and flush draw both hit so he might have you beat.

      If you check/call you would not be sure if he has you beat or not.

      I like your line.

      Make it 1$, since you are OOP and you are deepish.
      Bet flop more.
      B/f seems reasonable here. With the A we can bet/call .
