Best Answer

Our Sun is an "average" sized star. Although it seems big to us, this is only because it is the closest to us. The largest star so far found in VY Canis Majoris which is over 2,000 times larger than our own Sun. Over 9 billion Suns could fit inside it.

The Sun is a yellow dwarf, and is nothing compared to betelguse or VY Canis Majoris.

The Sun is easily beaten by almost all the other normal to bigger stars.
