      Cbet! You basically show your hand with a c/r there.

      That's flop where you should cbet most of your hands and people expect that. I would just bet ~0.15$ without much doubt. If he's call happy - better for us. Flop is rather dry, but there are still some QJ/J9/AT or, if we're lucky, AK that will call at least one street down. I would keep betting turn and river without many tricks, because I'm just too afraid to loose value on any street, to wait for him get tricky. If you wanted to play it differently, you may call down the flop, but c/r is just way too strong.
      Just my humble opinion.

      You are loosing value here by checking. You are the aggressor and he is not betting here often enough. I would bet less then Duudalinja here, like $0,12, to make it easier for him to call, but thats not so relevant.

      Ok, well at least everyone agrees here guys. Thanks for the help I'll definally cbet the next time.

      C/R is probably too fancy for this limit anyways I think I will remove that from my arsenal :D

      if you have c/f a lot or if he floats a lot on the flop then either c-bet flop and then c/r turn or c/r flop is fine play
      Since he usually doesn´t have too much in that board then you gain extra money by letting him bluff instead of folding to your c-bet
