      Looks tight but I think I can make a profitable 4-bet IP but he calls :(
      Obvsly ch behind to keep his PPs in.
      Clear value bet on turn vs draws and AT/JJ/QQ?

      Can't say you're wrong about preflop, but you do realize the sample is really small. 20% 3bet over 15 hands could just mean he picked up QQ once and 3bet it, that's it.

      As played checking the flop is fine, mostly because if he happened to call somewhat light with broadways he could actually have stuff like KQs/QJs in there, so that would suck to c-bet and get jammed on, we'd probably have to call it off and be 3-outing at best if we're totally wrong about him ever being light there. That's why I usually don't start getting into high variance tricky spots when I have no idea what villain is up to, at least not at microstakes.

      Fine valuebet on the turn, he could have a T sometimes as well as a naked club or something, JJ-QQ with or without a club fit really well too. You're still behind sometimes since it's perfectly possible he checked the flop with stuff like AK/KQs/KK/TT because he thought you'd c-bet it, and then checked again the turn because now a flush is possible.

      Hope it helps.
