      Raising flop is fine I think a he cbet small and by that he could be drawing cheaply as board allows a lot of combinations for draws. Turn is ugly, now flush completed, QJ straight completed and I don't see much value in betting here. If he's afraid and he has Tx/9x he won't bet it anyway as that Kd is scary for him as well and he may think you could raise him again, so I would play c/f on turn. Same for river, because I think no one pair/two pair hands are betting here from player with 2.25 af.

      I would prefer 3-bet pf. your hand is very strong and he would call with worse hands pf
      I think c/r is fine on the flop, although you can also consider just c7c or leading to keep pot small
      Not sure you can bet turn for value, but I think it is better than c/f
