      Against 2 Opponents on a missed flop, our standard line would be to not make a ContinuationBet, especially when we are up against Callingstations like you said is the case here.
      In this hand you have another advantage, you are in position and can take a free shot at your outs for the straight or a high pair.
      So I would definitely check behind here too.
      (I wouldn't make a continuationbet here even if I was first to act, just because the board is really dangerous and could have hit our opponents in many ways!)

      On the Turn your bet should be a bit bigger, something between 0,75-1$ to protect against flushdraws and to also allow your bet on the river to look much smaller, since you wouldn't have much money left then.
