Holding on the 210 Radial would mean your inbound course for the holding would be 030, right?
As you are flying to the station you have to set 030 on "top" of the OBS with a "to" indication in order not to get a reverse sensing indication!

The most common technique I see (and use myself since long time) is to locate the INBOUND (QDR) on the HSI, for the 210 radial, that would be to select 030 on that instrument, a short while before reaching that VOR station, and proceed to the station using the RMI at "12 o'clock" or so.
If you are talking about the "OBS", you must be dealing with light planes, which I am not familiar with as far as that type of instrument's standard use, or recommended procedure. I personally would do the same, select the INBOUND (QDM 030) -
Happy landings to you...

NO!!!! It could go either way. It all depends which way you are tracking the 210 radial. If your inbound course in the hold was towards the VOR, you would have 210 in the bottom of the OBS. If you were holding on the 210 radial going away from the VOR, 210 would be on the top. If you remember nothing else remember this: RADIALS ONLY GO FROM A STATION. If you know that, remembering this little ryme will help everything. FROM top TO bottom. If you are going TO the station, the radial will be on the bottom. Hope I helped.

Just a reminder that although you will put the 210 at the top of the OBS for the intercept, you will want to turn it to the reciprocal 030 (210 at the bottom) before you turn inbound in the hold. Otherwise you will get reverse sensing.
