He also has some 2 pair type hands and aces with bigger kicker than yours. Furthermore judging by the size of the bet I think he is unlikely to stop betting on future streets and are you really calling him down with top pair medium kicker? I think the best play here is just to fold.
Also a side note, preflop is super bad in my opinion. You need to be raising it up to about $0.40 - $0.50 or folding. This is because A9o flops terribly and can get you in lots of trouble, especially out of position. However, Im more used to full ring games so this could be wrong and if so someone please correct me. But to me, calling seems like the worst option preflop.
Good read with the 4 way pot, I can see that not being a bluff at all, I was kind of picturing a flush draw and that was my best case scenario. I also agree with the bets on future streets which is why I did fold. The preflop play was pretty weak/passive but I felt like A9o was not worth a reraise and I figured if people had AJ+ they would not of basically limped in with the min raise of 2BB.
