All-In Shoves in Small Pots

Blinds: $0.01/$0.02 (6 Players) BN: $2.57
SB: $6.58
BB: $2.17
UTG: $4.34 (Hero)
MP: $5.09
CO: $2.02
Preflop ($0.03) Hero is UTG with K J
Hero raises to $0.05, 2 folds, BN calls $0.05, 2 folds
Honestly, probably an open that is on the looser side, normally KQo+, AJo+ is the range UTG for off suited broadways
Flop ($0.13) K 4 Q
Hero checks, BN bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04
again, misplayed this by checking. I think on this texture with two overcards that favor the UTG raiser, could go for something like a range bet of 1/3 pot.
Turn ($0.21) K 4 Q 3
Hero checks, BN bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06
I'm thinking I misplayed the turn as well, given that there are so many draws out on this texture, I ought to be raising against a small bet like this with a merged range, including some weaker top pairs like KJo.
River ($0.33) K 4 Q 3 J
Hero checks, BN bets $2.42 and is all in, Hero folds
In retrospect, feel pretty awful about the check. I think I wanted to leave the door open for villain to bluff with some of his missed FD and air.
Could have maybe played ATo, 89s, pocket 3s and pocket 4s this way? I have this fear that people at NL2 are just slow playing sets all the time and I'm not sure how reasonable that is. Just feel like villain is really nutted when he does this. Thinking ATo, T9s.
Final Pot BN wins $0.32
Rake is $0.01
