Pretty much, at least on APS-C, but I haven't seen every 49mm hood in the world.

Any standard lens hood of this type should be fine:
49mm Standard Metal Lens Hood for Canon Nikon Sony Z021 | eBay
However, on a cropped sensor, I would go for somethiing like that, using step up rings to 58mm
58mm 58 mm Tele Metal Lens Hood for Canon Nikon Sony Olympus Pentax Lens Cap | eBay
It would make the lens a lot bulkier, but for a non-coated Takumar it could be worth it. (I personally have not tested that but I have ready somewhere it should work). Maybe someone could confirm.

I was thinking of going with a rubber hood or a flower type one, the takumar I have is SMC. What do you think? Should I go with the first one you mentioned or a flower type hood?
Also, my main reason for using a lens hood is to protect the lens, I'm really clumsy and I've already dropped a takumar lens and dented the filter ring in the past...

If you mean a 50mm f/1.4 most likely but then I haven't seen every hood out there either. I found a Pentax original on eekBay for not very much. Here's one at Adorama.

27$ for me is a lot! I could almost buy a new lens with that kind of money! I'm only looking to pay like 2.00, I don't mind if its cheaply built as it's only purpose will be to protect the filter ring.

My SMC Takumar 55/1.8 wore a 49mm rubber hood for 30 years.
Cheap, great protection, and you can close in the hood a little by hand
if you need to shade from a certain direction.

In my experience, metal provides better protection than rubber. Thats why Ive always bought metal hoods. I really have no experience with the rubber ones. I would imagine their performance with flare reduction would be the same. It's really personal choice. If you have SMC coating then you should probably just go for the smaller and more compact one (first link).

Flower type hoods tend to be for wide angle lens and would not provide enough shade for a 50mm tak

You can find something on ebay for $5 that will work fine.

A long long time ago, I uploaded a spreadsheet called hoodcalc. It is I think still on the forum somewhere,

It can calculate the hood length, given (for non retro focus wide angle lenses) the front element diameter, and sensor format and hood diameter
