      Raise more preflop because you are OOP.

      Bet turn imo. Gutshot+FD+pre and flop aggressor. He would call you with anything on the flop. But most importantly that card increased you equity and you have good implied odds.

      You have some equity, so betting can be done, but I think giving up is not the worse play. I hate it, but still if he's calling station he will never fold Jx, he may have KQ/JQ/JK and even AJ/AQ if he didn't raise them pre magically so by betting you just don't have any FE here and I don't think AK has enough equity itself because of blurry outs.
      I may be wrong with this, correct if so.

      Depends on how comfortable you feel betting the turn solidly. If played correctly, you betting the turn is more some kind of value semi-bluff that allows you to 1/ just fold if your loose passive opponent raises you on the turn 2/ play another street in a biggish pot with a skill edge over the fish. So it is profitable to bet again on the turn provided that you can play the river card correctly, which can be difficult with "blurry outs" as Duudalinja put it. So indeed if you don't feel like playing such situations yet, check/folding isn't a bad idea.

      Another in-between, very exploitable line (who cares, that guy surely can't exploit you willingly) would be to simply blockbet that turn to some ridiculous amount. Passive players may get aggressive when you check to them, but once you bet first it's usually a lot more difficult for them to actually decide to raise. So since loose passive players usually won't go nuts raising small bets with anything below two pairs, this allows you to see the river card without really relinquishing the betting lead, and end up on a river in a pot of moderate size that you can play in without jeopardizing a stack.

      Hope it helps.
