A caller is never bluffing...I thought he had 44, but value bet anyways.

Flop bet is way too big
You bet the pot, since both opponents checked to you, its unlikely any of them are going to call a pot sized bet and if you want to get any value here, 50% of 10c is good i feel.

The turn bet again is way too big, same thing, a 50% bet would have been better.

I am shocked your opponent paid you off that quick.

I know that you got paid and everything but most times here you are losing value to your set because your opponent won't pay the price you are setting.

If that were me, I would have figured the pot sized bet to be a set, two pair or perhaps the straight and if I had something like 88 or perhaps A7 then I would fold.

What if I had 88 and checked the flop, you bet 50% and I call.
I then check the turn, you bet 50% and I call.
I then check the river, here you could say value bet anywhere from 30-50% and I might call

Here though, you got 2 bets out of me (perhaps 3) that wouldnt have happened before

I personally don't think you played the right value line is all
