      In retrospect, I think Fold Turn is the best option here.

      Villain is unknown so there's no need to risk more money. Let's analyze a bit:

      - he cold calls a utg raise, probably a pp or broadway
      - check raises F, I don't think a full house would c/r here so we can exclude 55 from his hand range. He either has 44, 66,77,88,99,JJ or a bluff (or random, we don't know this guy)
      - then bets big on the 8 of hearts on the turn, either he has hit the 8, or he has a 2.

      - JJ and <99 would not cbet Turn, because I open raised from UTG so there is a big chance I have a bigger pair.

      So there it is, villain most of the times is betting Turn with a better hand. And because he is unknown it's no use taking this hand further.

      PS: It's so easy to see an good fold when not on tilt :f_p:

      against unknown I´d call him down
      Just he won´t really c/r flop with JJ+ and then go crazy postflop even if he should happen to have there JJ. I´d expect most of the player to 3-bet with QQ+
      Since flushdraw missed I think I would shove turn. Calldown is reasonable, but if he has there flushdraw, like smt like Axss that you want him to fold or if he calls it is also fine. Anyway there can be overcard on the river that would improve his hand
      Another point, he likely doesn´t have there 2x, 55 and88 are also not likely, so i think you´re mostly ahead on the turn and should shove for value
