Yes. With the suffix on small, it makes it seem like a statement of fact. If you don't have it, it makes it seem like a general statement about some spider.

What is the difference between küçüktür and ķüçüksun?

I think:- "Küçüktür" is a fact (due to the -dIr suffix). "Küçüksün" means 'You are small'.

Hope that helps :)

I am confused between küçüktür and the other grammer that states facts which comes with "dır"

1) If this is "A spider is small", how would you change it to make it "The spider is small"?

I think that would be the same sentence. (I'm not a native)
