      Preflop: Just 4-bet this to $2.40 and prepare to play for stacks. This is blind vs blind whereby your opening range is going to be wide, and villain's 3-betting range is also going to be wider, allowing you to 4-bet wider.

      As played,

      Flop: This could be a check/raise or a check/call. Either option is fine in my opinion.

      River: As played, folding is way too weak. You have top pair top kicker here.
