      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      UTG1 calls, UTG2 calls, MP1 folds, MP2 calls, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.35, 5 folds, MP2 calls.

      Flop: (43.50 SB) 3, 4, Q (2 players)
      MP2 bets $0.05, Hero calls.

      i hit nothing, i have odds to call this small bet.
      maybe this small bet tells that MP2 got nothing,
      and it is better for me to attack flop now because of scary queen on board.
      If i got reraised, i know he teased me.
      if i got called, i will make another decision on turn.
      So what is the best move call or raise.

      My first thought is that he is on the flush draw or has hit a big hand - a set. I would raise here to get info, i dont want to hit the turn and not knowing where i stand. With a raise u probably force the draw to fold and if he reraise u know ur beaten. if he calls and i hit the turn i would fire a second barrel(if it isnt a club) otherwise i would fold to a big bet and call another mini bet in hopes of hitting the river and be abel to check down or call a mini bet, ofcourse if i dont hit and he check i would check behind.

      Lets see what others have to say.

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: I'd like to raise such minbet if he shows some kind of aggression back then just fold. I do not like to call there better just fold.
