It’s a really strange play to bet the min and then shove. Maybe he’s got KT/QJ/etc, but he also has a lot of spades, Kx, Qx, Jx. You only have to win 35% of the time for it to be a profitable call.
A check shove would make more sense for his play, this is just really strange. A little history of the player would make this an easier decision
A check/shove when you have the nuts is pretty effective in microstakes, because people just don’t believe you. I mean worst case is he’s got QsJs and you still have a handful of outs

I think that we need more info on villain before we can accurately make a decision. With that being said...
I don't like to fold AA to wierdos who could have maybe overvalued top pair, but i don't really mind a sigh fold here. I think we would really need him to have a decent amount of overvalued Kx and flush draws to call. I just don't see him min-donk/jamming AsXs.
In my expierence a donk/jam is usually a pretty nutted line, as i said i am okay with a sigh-fold here.

for a dollar i don't fold that. the .02 could have been a misclick that was supposed to be a check or a bigger bet, likely hit bet instead of a % and then bet. so i would do whatever you'd normally do on a check or a standard bet.
to me an open shove or any overbet shove indicates weakness so i'd call.
