I think this is a fold. I think button has 1 worse flush combo in his range, and I highly doubt they call a pot sized bet otf with the naked ace of clubs to bluff the turn. Small sample sure, but probably enough to suggest villain wouldnt flat low suited gappers.

Would expect villain to c/call a set on the turn MW as it's so likely 1 player has a flush draw otf. Turn sizing is a bit ridic and polarising, probably looking for max value versus a straight or worse flush.

Edit: Is button a recreational player?

Several possible alternatives pop up with a weaker CO involved here that we could take advantage of. Leading flop/turn/river are some of them, as is shoving turn vs straights or 1 card flushdraw stuff.

I like how the hand went down though and I certainly don't fold. Your hand looks a lot weaker given your line so a weaker opponent can be shoving worse for thin value or as a bluff.
