and the definition may be modified to read:

\raisebox{-1pt}{\includegraphics[angle=0, scale=0.6]%

\xspace will check for next character and if it is a punctuation, will
not insert a space, otherwise a space will be inserted.

Do we need an \enspace inside the box? Will it not inhibit breaking?
Guess, \space at the beginning will be the best option.

Happy TeXing and best regards
