I would liken it to trying to measure a baby's BMI. It's probably not going to be accurate, although you can often have a good guess, you can look to the parents for some clue although that too can throw you off and it's going to change so quickly that it's best to wait.

back to my mom. when she has an Afro its pretty thick and her hair isn't curly its just like the hair is out and stretched.

For me, curl size only really matters for styling (and all styles can be adjusted and attempted for all curl types anyway) and since your hair is so short, you won't be doing much styling, so it doesn't matter right now! Try and figure out what makes and keeps it moisturised, how often it requires washing, how easy it takes up products, what helps keep the knots away, etc. rather than, how big are the curls. For now at least. Good luck!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.
