      I'd probably bet the same against unknown. I'd be even tempted to call the river. his super small bets screams for a raise. what do you you do if he shoves behind? he could do that with K9, AK or JJ depending of player.

      I'd raise slightly smaller on the turn, like 5$

      As played I'm gonna coldcall the river here. I don't think there are a lot of worse hands that are gonna call a reraise (we only have top pair 2nd kicker).

      standard raise on the river, he very often has there weak Kx hand or even Jx, 9x and if you ever want to consider bluffraising him on the river, you should balance that by raising river for value KQ+
