You're overthinking things. This is the micro stakes. Your opponent isn't thinking about your Cbetting tendencies. Especially not this player in particular who limp-called preflop. He's a fish and he's only thinking about his own hand.
In general, the rule is to Cbet more on dry flops (especially paired boards) and Cbet less on wet flops. At the high stakes, you can mix this up a bit, but at the micro stakes, you should follow this rule of thumb.
Having said that, I still do believe that it's okay to Cbet this particular board, but only because of the context of the villain being a loose-passive fish that limp-called preflop and will have plenty of worse hands in his range that can and will continue (like gutshots, backdoor draws, weaker pocket pairs, etc.). Just remember though that you're Cbetting for value; not as a bluff.
And no, the villain is never folding Tx here. You're only betting to get value from worse. Don't ever expect this villain in particular to fold hands that have you beat. Players who limp-call preflop, especially with high VPIP's, tend to be calling stations that get sticky with a lot of 1 pair hands.
The whole thought process of "the villain should respect my Cbet more on a wet board because it's a board which I would typically be less likely to Cbet bluff because I would typically expect less fold equity on that board texture" is not a thought process that belongs at the micro stakes. It's fancy play syndrome. Leave this stuff for the higher stakes. Just follow the rules of ABC poker and save all the "my opponent expects me to play ABC, so I'm going to do this instead" stuff for the higher stakes.
