      No reads on player first couple of hands,

      I guess my question is since he was leading into me is it good to call? What made me raise was the 2 spades

      Yes it's good to raise here.
      Not only because of the two spades but also since you have to build the pot. If he is weak he will not really improve anyway and just c/f future streets should you call on the flop, hence you do not loose value by raising here.

      you´re not going to fold on any turn card, so I think slowplaying on quite dry board is reasonable
      He can´t have there much since you block Qx and against set you´re going to get money all-in anyway on the turn or river
