      Hey,

      I think you can fold. :) You are never ahead of any hand, that's the problem. In situations where straights are possible, having top set is a huge difference from bottom set. With top set you crush some hands in your opponent's range and you have reasonable equity against straights.. here you have OK equity vs straights but you are crushed by other sets. There are some 2pair possible here too but I think overall bottom set is a fold and you can stop folding from second set and better. :)
