I am trying to erase something and the cursor isn't a circle, its a crosshair. My capslock is off and I checked in preferences and I have normal brush selected.

If your eraser size is 10 px or less, the circle becomes a crosshair.

Is there any way to avoid this? It's incredibly annoying. I just want a tiny circle. I can't find it anywhere in the "General" options or otherwise (using Photoshop 22.1 on OS X 11.1).

That is an Illustrator preference - not Photoshop (where it is set in Preferences Cursors)

Had me going for a minute there.  I was looking for an April Fools angle.
