I check. Should I have raised against SB?

Hero bets. SB folds.
SB is probably going to raise with any Pocket pair or Decent Q, K or A.
Blind vs Blind you wanna raise your pocket pairs, you've got the best hand %99 of the time preflop.
Betting out on this board after he checks is totally fine as well, as he would probably be out if he has a queen here to take down what's in the pot already without wanting you to get a free card.
