      I would call flop to keep any 5x and lower PPs in the hand. By raising I think worse he is shoving is TT. So, call flop, reevaluate turn.

      I wouldn't raise as it does nothing but pushes all worse hands out. So you may just call flop and see the turn and river action. If he bets strong again I would most likely fold as he has many hands that you beat in his range and I'm not willing to put my stack into game to check out if he has anything.

      don´t like raise/folding there
      If you have some kind of metagame where he shoves 88 thinking you´re bluffing then raise/call is fine
      But generally just call and decide on the turn if you want to call him down or fold your hand
      Also you can 3-bet pf and take initiative
