Stuck with tot holding present (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

adhered

'stuck' is the definition.
('adhere' can be a synonym of 'stick')

'tot holding present' is the wordplay.
'tot' becomes 'add' (synonyms).
'holding' indicates putting letters inside.
'present' becomes 'here' (both can mean in attendance).
'add' going around 'here' is 'ADHERED'.

'with' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for adhered that I've seen before include "Showed sticking power" , "Stuck - redhead (anag)" , "Stuck to, remained loyal" , "Stuck (to something)" , "Stuck; glued" .)
