      Personally I bet out on the flop, I dont like to check raise when I have been the aggressor pre flop as I think this gives away the strong hand.
      If I have raised and been called I prefer to c-bet as its usually what villain is expecting if you miss anyway.
      Turned out ok though so no worries

      Although I have a very nice hand here I don't really get any value from villain unless he decides to bluff or coincidently has AJ. He usually doesn't hold a Q, and if he hit another set he's broke by river anyways no matter how we play.

      The only ways I see are:
      -purebluffs from him (board isn't drawy too much)
      -he hits a lucky card on turn and bets it

      You have to bet on that flop. (and I´d make pf 2,5$)
      He could have Tx, straightdraw or medium pp that he´d probably continue.

      I have tried slowplaying trips a few times, after always getting sucked out by flush or straight I dont do it anymore, you have to bet to give bad odds for such draws. Now I only slowplay huge hands which are almost unbeatable like FH or higher.
