Raising The Turn For Value?

Blinds: $0.02/$0.05 (6 Players) BN: $5.69 (Hero)
SB: $10.00
BB: $12.29
UTG: $6.05
MP: $5.00
CO: $5.23
Preflop ($0.07) Hero is BN with Q A
2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 2 folds
I think I should have opened up my 3betting range for value here and look to call a 4bet in position. The only negative to this is at the microstakes it is debatable whether many villains have a 4bet bluffing range but possibly in this very dynamic situation. Villain here is 21/21 over 14 hands, so no real reads apart from looking very reggy. Anyway I elect to call, keeping in many worse aces, suited connects, broadways etc. etc.
Flop ($0.37) 9 A 4
CO bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26
I see no real reason to raise here. I keep all bluffs in and gives them the opportunity to fire again. Villain at this point has his entire cut off range.
Turn ($0.89) 9 A 4 7
CO bets $0.64, Hero raises to $2.24, CO raises to $4.82 and is all in
My raise seems awfully big coming to look at it. Maybe something in the realm of $1.80 if I were to do it again. The big question is, should I have even done it? What exactly should my raising range be here if any? I can certainly get called by a coupe of weaker aces (AJo, AJs, ATs and possibly ATo) whilst also getting called by better aces (Ak, A9s, A4s,A7s) plus the obvious sets.

My main reason for the raise was to try and get full value if and when the flush hits. I will obviously lose sometimes to the better aces and sets but I will also have a large degree of equity against these hands if I do get called.

Would like to know peoples thoughts.
