villain unknown
OTT I his small bet looks weak, a hand that doesnt like the king like 9x,TT-JJ, do I include draws without a K in his range too or would those barrel the turn bigger because K looks like a scare card?
He checked the river that reinforces the turn read, but im oop and I can do nothing about it now.
Is there any way to take the pot? Can I attempt to bluff an unknown at 5nl?

I think you played that absolutely fine. Villain signals strength OTF and gives you a great discounted price OTT which is his mistake, so I feel taking advantage of that is best here even though you're OOP and it's tougher to make money if you make your hand OTR. Also I'm not a great fan of trying to bluff/semibluff people at the micros too much as they usually give you enough money when you hit your hand too. I give credit to the average microstakes player's aggression postflop.
