      Preflop I think is fine. On the flop, the board doesn't show too many draws except possible straights, and I don't think either of these guys are calling with anything that gives them an OESD. I also didn't think SB was betting with a gutshot, so I thought he had a set, maybe an overpair.

      Ok to call and take a passive line vs. re-raising?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I don't mind calling the flop here.
      Board is quite dry and we are not afraid of draws, but then there might come a scary card on the turn (such as K/A) and he'd slow down with his TT probably.
      Anyways, I think that raising here will scare him more, so I think your line is good.

      You could also flat the turn, but given his sizing I doubt he'd end up folding at all.
