Default nl10 - flopped straight; now what?

My main question is about what to do on the flop (lead out-slowplay-C/R) and how is my play on turn/river.

So i flopped a straight, and made a lil bet on the flop.
I get reraised and I thought about it for a sec but eventually just called, i didnt want to raise tp out of this pot.
The turn is a decent card i think and I went for the c/r.
The nine on the river sucked and because its a pretty good card to bluff i dont want to check to him so i made a blocking bet.

Sanity check? pls

Flop is standard because you have the nuts. You should probably raise more on the turn to build the pot. I usually bet half pot on the river for value if Im not really sure where my opponent is at.

bet .25$ on the flop call the raise b/c board is dry, make a ps raise on the turn to 2.5$. Bet more on the river, like 4,5$...

I like this play but I think you're underbetting on each street.

Raise more on the turn, or even b3b. (If he has nothing he folds to your bet on the turn, but you wouldn't have made much money anyway. But if he raises your turn bet you can play for stacks which is your goal here. If he has A6 or any 6 he probably raises the turn.) Anyway raise more the turn, you are trying to stack him.
But I check the river and call in within reason. He definitely doesn't call with anything weaker, but he might bluff at it and you're happy to call if reasonable. I think a blocking bet works better if the flop was 2 to a flush and you can pretend you were semi bluffing all the time and got there. But he would never believe you got the backdoor flush and might reraise the river repping the flush. If he has a boat you lose either way so don't worry about that.
My guess is he had 77 and donk called the river bet. Just kidding.
Of course my advice could be very wrong, but that's how I would play it.

Thx for feedback.
Yeah,i should have made my bets a bit bigger.
I think the river is pretty though, betting out or c/c are both pretty good choises. But im actually now in favour of c/c (thx 2 geode) because of his stats (pretty aggro) and the river card being a pretty good card to bluff at.
Result: he folded to my river bet
