      Preflop i would raise to about 15c
      On the flop i'd raise much bigger due to the odds that you then give the others to hit a flush/straight

      i agree totally with dr raab, as although your preflop limp is ok and is +ev, it would most likely be more +ev to make a raise, you get your self into a positon where you have lots of dead money in the pot and have position on everyone else, making it a reasonably profitable spot.

      post flop, you gotta bet bigger, because if the queen that hit on the turn was a diamond, it puts you in all sorts of trouble. because with a call on the flop, it would suggest a draw, so you would probably end up bet/folding the turn, bet bigger on the flop for a mix of value and protection, if they want to see that 4th card, make them pay for it.

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Preflop: You should rather raise than limp into multiway pot here.

      As played
      Postflop: Raise is fine but you should raise it bigger then it also protect your hand which should be the reason of our raise.

      Best Regards.
