Set vs reg - correct check?

So I had a situation that comes up often in my play - and I always struggle. This is with a set, on the BB, against (what I believe to be) a decent player from UTG:

Now, I struggled with my river decision. Is this an easy check against a reg? He has enough hands in his range that I beat and might get value from right? Also if he would be aggressive on the river after I check i'd have a difficult decision, so is a defensive bet on the river the better play f.e.?

Villain stats:
VP 22 - PR 19 - 3B 11 - F3B 71 - CB 67 over a 90 hand sample
He checked behind with AdJc

    Before analyzing river I would like to know if you ever x/c sets on this flop and also is JJ part of your 2B calling range in the BB?
    Second are you ever checking the flush on turn?

    To be honest your answer will rely upon the way you split your range on flop but mostly on turn.
    This board isn’t favorable for you overall. UTG has all nuts where you have very few. So given the line you took, a check with sets of five on river is most likely ok.
