      Should I fold turn? I think river I had to fold, especially when he bets only 1/2 pot it is better than mine.

      Turn call is standard, it's an obvious bluff card for him. He could still have some air like AK ATs AJ KJs or turn some pocket pair into a bluff.

      On the River callng is not an option. Given his tight opening range you lose to almost everything. So we are left with the option of c/r or c/f. I probably prefer c/f, I don't think his bet size necessarily indicates that he has only 1 pair here and also he may not necessarily fold top pair here (even though I think he should a lot of the time if we checkraise all in)
