If this is a small or new team than you can easily have more credit than the team.

Correct sentence:
If this is a small or new team, then you can easily have more credit than the team.


If. . . . , then. . . . (like a hypothesis in science), but in common usage the idea of "then" is usually understood instead of written: If you are late, [then] we will eat dinner without you.

As a conjunctive adverb, don't use a comma after it (one syllable):
Mark drove the car down the street; then I heard a loud crashing noise.

As a filler, comma before and after:
Well, then, what do you propose we do?
