Villain is unknown. What do you guys think? Check-call, check-fold, blocker-bet/call, blocker-bet/fold? My thinking was I looked weak and he was turning a hand into a bluff to rep the queen. I think maybe the bet is just to thin... and without a read idk I guess check-folding should be my default play?

Edit: ah I keep posting into the wrong forum... my bad
