Is is grammatical correct to leave off the suffix on 'small'?

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?

https://www.duolingo.com/Dxb---Dxb

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

Hope that helps :)

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)

You would probably leave off the "tur" ending, since one would not normally make a general statement about a specific spider. So "Örümcek küçük."
