Thats not enough of a reason.
If you think you are ahead you should bet to put value in the pot. You want to make sure that you are not giving worse hands good odds
to call you. With such a small bet, it actually might be correct for him to just call there with a lot of hands. You win at poker when you force your opponents to make mistakes, or at least give them the opportunity to make them.
If you bet around the size of the pot there, any call that is a draw is making a mistake in calling. That is good for you, because that will ultimately make you money.
Betting small because you want them to think its a steal... not great reasoning to bet. Make sure when you bet it is either to get value for your good hands (make a worse hand call) or to bluff (to get a better hand to fold). You can potentially combo those, but ultimately those are the only reasons. To make him think I am stealing is neither for value or to bluff... its just kinda ... meh.
Here there are no draws, but in general that is what you should be doing.
Also in this spot, if someone has any piece of this or even just a pair they are never folding. If someone has nothing they are not likely to call even a small bet.
