The Big Bang theory postulates that the universe is expanding from an extremely hot and dense state. It does not necessarily say that this state was a singularity - but a singularity would have been consistent with Einstein's relativity theory. If it was indeed a singularity, then it would have been much smaller than a dot; much smaller even then a proton. In fact, it would have had no size at all.
