      You have only $23 behind which means that u r never (IMO) folding an overpair b/c u only need 22% equity to call a river shove given the pot odds. Now u need to decide whther to bet yourself or to c/c. I personally think a bet is much better b/c he will often check behind hands with showdown value. I would just shove river and hope to see a smaller p/p or maybe even ace high. You could only c/f, if u think he only bets stronger hands and would require a strong read.
      Note: I am not 100% certain about this hand. This is just my impression of the hand.

      He doesn´t always have there Tx so you can consider shoving to get called by worse pp-s
      Not sure if he is ever shoving there worse hands. Sometimes you see A high, but likely that would take just showdown and hope for split
      So if your image is not great and/or he likes to go on showdowns I think shove is fine. you can consider c/f, but I think you get too good odds, so better is to c/c
