      It's OK imo. He might bet AK, QJ, QT is he is loose, maybe even try a bluff. If the river bet would have been bigger I might not say it's a call but 1/2 of the pot you have to call with your hand imho.

      I don't think calling QJs is such a mistake, at least I would do it myself against some opps. I wouldn't donk it, I expect him to cbet that flop, so c/r would be my choice, but if he's not cbetting often enough to make you believe, leading is fine. He will call flop with FD/Ax most likely anyway, but I doubt he will bet a lot of turns if he didn't improve, so I lead out turn and river, but playing c/f most likely, because if he's not overaggro, I doubt he's raising worse hands here ever.

      I think QJs plays quite ok postflop, so you can call that hand
      I think you played your hand fine
      You can also b/f river yourself to 0.5$, but if you want to see showdown then c/c is also reasonable
