      Read on villain is that he's normally quite passive and often backed down from my Cbets, the rather large PF raise made me think he's strong, and then the near pot bet on the flop spooked me... maybe a bluff but I haven't seen him doing it

      I don't really mind these "weak" folds against passive players especially if you think you might not even be good right on the flop.

      Standard would still probably be to call one in case he has a lower overpair, but since you'll have no way of knowing how often he continues to fire TT-JJ on the turn compared to QQ+ and it really looks like he likes his hand, folding on the flop will probably leak less money if you intend on folding to a turn bet.

      Hope it helps.
