      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      CO:17/15/2.0 / 2.2% 3-bet / 6% cold call

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, A.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, BU calls $2.00, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($4.75) Q, 4, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BU calls $2.50.

      Turn: ($9.75) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $7.00, Hero calls $7.00.

      River: ($23.75) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.50, BU raises to $19.00, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $31.25.

      I didn't see many draws such a nitty villain could hold, therefore the small continuation bet.
      Bet/folding turn superior to the line I took?
      Checking river better?

      You took here so weird line.

      Even if he is a nit, you should bet more on flop (and 17/15 isnt too nitty).
      2 is a total blank, no reason to check here, maybe for bluff induce. So you c/call here. Bet/fold would be better, if you think he never raises with worse here.

      On river - now you are donking small to get cheap SD. This move is bad imo, you tell him, that you want to fold to a reraise. Just c/call here also. And you cant bet/fold here - just too good odds. You must put him on 44 or 88. Both are plausible, but he isnt too passive and can make some moves postflop.

      if you don´t want to play big pot oop then c/c him down is ok line
      Just don´t donk out river and then fold to small raise. he can easily raise there with bluffs or Qx for value
      I would play bet/call flop, bet/fold turn, c/c river or b/f river is ok line
      Even 2,2% should 3-bet pf QQ+, so unless he ahs set you´re ahead against flushdraws or Qx or some pp-s
