      You didn't have TPTK so it's a fold.

      Since the board is paired, and only 4 other cards fit the board here (2 fives and 2 more tens in the deck), you are often ahead here, if nobody has a 5, an overpair or a better Ten here. Or kicker is not really important in this hand. So why not be yourself about $1.30 and fold to more aggression from other players (since then you´re very often beat). If you get called, be causious on the turn. Your opponent might called with Overcards or a 5.
