      In freeplay you should play only TP with J+ kicker, if this was the case, then you should value bet turn and push river, but since you have only 9 for kicker I would c/f all the way.

      As played, I would c/f turn or go broke if you have some reason to believe you're ahead.

      P.S.: What makes you think he's loose? He does have high VPIP, but his WTS and W$SD say he's tight postflop.

      I think 2/3 pot bet on flop does the job , the flop is dry and you are heads up.

      Since he is passive I expect him to bet only better hands than yours so check/folding is fine.

      Bet Pot in Freeplays > Bet 2/3 pot
