OK - so you were able to tell by watching his face that he had exactly... what, AJ? TT? There's no chance he'd be wearing exactly the same expression with AK or AA, which we beat? Unless villain has physically shown his cards to us, I don't see how we can think anything other than we're ahead of a good chunk of his range (and that we have at least four outs against pretty much all of the hands that are ahead).
And once again, I think this decision was all made preflop because if your plan was to call in position, flop top two pair and then find a reason to fold then you need a new plan.
Even with 25BB left behind. If that's your plan then you should have folded preflop.
