I like pre-flop and flop a lot too. Generally I check turn in this spot, because it will usually be tough to get 3 streets of value from worse hands. So by checking the turn, we allow him to bluff / bet his floats, and can then try to get paid off on the river if he checks back turn. We also don't have to worry much about giving a free card with this particular combo.

I would also check-call this turn. I think, you are focusing to much on the hands, that are just worse than yours like QJ/QT. How often does he really have exactly that? Probably not very often, especially since you block them, and if he called with anything other than the suited combos, that would be extremely loose and frankly bad.
