This particular play is most definitely a fold. But, what you are suggesting is that he should fold every low pocket pair pre-flop if there is any raise whatsoever. You are 8-1 to make a set, and you are definitely not getting the right odds to make the call. But you call anyways because the implied odds usually outweigh the odds on your money.
