      Hey pokerboy198229,

      Preflop is good spot to raise for value.

      I'd bet larger on the flop, around $0.45.

      I'd bet again on the turn around $0.55 to encourage calls from draws.

      River play is good. Be careful of slowplaying sets too often, in most cases you want to be aggressive.
