      I'd go for check/call.If you bet there you will probably not get called/raised by anything than a better flush. If you check he might valuebet you with a better flush , or try to bluff you , or just check behind without a club.

      Hi degnic

      I would bet more on the turn to protect small flush as well as get more value. As to the river Check/Fold might be a good option since there's 6 higher clubs on the turn left with two opponents, it's fairly possible that one of them had it.

      Hi degnic!

      I agree with rubysilesia. Bet more on the turn to protect your small flush. On the river it's check/fold because almost no opponent would call a big turn bet without having at least one club. Since you only have the 6 as a kicker it's an easy fold imo.

      Good luck at the tables!
