      Flop: I'd bet bigger here, ~$0.50-$0.60 because I would do the same with all my hands, you have to protect the board, also you have a perfect hand for a nut flushdraw.
      Turn: Also betting bigger here, ~$1.40 because I want to build up the pot now with my nuts and try to get maxium value from him. As he decides to raise us, you have to consider whether if he is capable of going broke here or not. If you think he can fold there Jx type of hands then Calling behind his raise is totally fine and hope for him to bet again on river because after that you can likely raise him and will get his stack anyways, he will be likely commited to the pot. But a lot of diamonds could also kill the action so you could also just raise there smallish for example and hope him to shove.

      Best regards.
