      NH I think. But I would bet pot on the flop and turn because likely he is on a draw ( normally limp / call UTG = PP so its not likely he already has the flush..) , so if the river is not a diamond you win a lot of money.

      On the river ok check you dont beat nothing now.

      You can probably bet more to protect both on the flop and on the turn but it will only make it harder to fold on an ugly river given the odds. If you pot both streets, you'll get odds such that you're forced to shove even a diamond river (don't c/c it's worse) on the off chance he's calling you down with a naked top pair, which he could very well do if he's a big enough fish.

      So your bet sizing is probably fine until you can assess really how big of a fish that guy is.

      Hope it helps.
