Pre is std. Fold flop imo but that doesn't mean the call pre was bad, we're not facing a pot sized bet everytime we hit top pair and we don't always hit top pair on the worst possible board to hit top pair.

I'm not so sure this is incredibly tough spot. at 0.90 cent level im tempted to go with it here. Higher stakes prob an easy fold.

That's the trouble with calling with this sort of hand, awful flop to GII on too, fold.
