Hi nee,

My gut reaction was that it's close. Then I tried plugging a range of hands I thought he might take this action with into pokerstove to check our equity. I used TT+, AK, AQ, AhJh, Ah9h, KQ, KJs, KTs, so basically better made hands, other AQ's, and worse hands which are drawing... and we are smashed by this range, a 2-1 dog. I didn't include 2 pair hands like QJ or JT but when I add those in we're still about the same a 2-1 dog. Basically, if the villain has no bluffs in his range (only solid made hands and semi-bluffs) we are smashed... and I think without reads I would never expect the guy to be bluffing here. So I think it's a good fold, yes, and my gut reaction was wrong, it's really not that close.
