raise the flop or flat calling for pot control would be fine.
still, i would prefer to raise the flop and see where u at. most prob you are going to get a fold if he has nothing, which in my view is the best result.

would not want him to catch his draws or hit his high card.

board quite dry except or a strag draw.

think his $4 was quite weak.
Both stacks are not that small, could have been value betting a set, so i would like to raise to see if my queens are good.
