There is no clear answer here. It would be like saying an apple is bigger then an egg. Not if it was an ostrich egg!

Look at it this way: A common molecule is water, one oxygen atom joined to 2 hydrogen atoms. Not a very big molecule. A single Uranium atom however would be much bigger then a water molecule.

So in some cases a molecule could be smaller then an atom, it would just depend on which atom or molecule.

A pure substance is called an element.  The smallest whole part of a pure is an atom.  If a substance is made of more than one elements its called a compound.  The smallest whole part of a compound is a molecule.
Sooo....there's no way to really tell!

No an atom is the smallest atomic structure. A molecule is comprised of atoms.
