BU seems to be a nitty 13/11 after 54 hands, SB is 67/0 rec after 21 hands.
I guess this squeeze is both for value and to isolate and play IP with recreational.
I think I have a value bet here. He might call with stuff like Qx but also FD, backdoor FD and straight draw type hands like 89,54 and gutshots T8,T9, 43 and also 7x or 6x like A7,A6 etc.
Should I go higher sizing to give a worse price to draws?
This card is propably good for him and I was not sure if I should make another thin v bet? Decided to checkback and try to go to showdown.
On river still realizing my plan to go to showdown.

I think you played this hand pretty well.
Always difficult OOP, but checking turn is okay. You can also bet turn but remember jj is a marginal hand on this board so there's no need to bloat the pot unnessary.
You said it in your post that the 9 on the turn helps the caller here, so it's probably best to check.
On the river you can decide to value bet here as villain would most likely bet the turn with a Q, but checking is also fine to ensure we realise our equity from OOP

NH. Might go a little smaller on the squeeze because BTN will likely fold, and you shouldn't care if SB tags along since you're IP. Other than that, looks good. You should be betting the flop for value. Good sizing.
