I would like to know if the lego flat bricks (2x2, 2x3, 2x4) have a smooth or
hollow bottom (so I can fit them together). Thank you for your answer

Seriously?

All standard Lego bricks and plates can fit together. That's kind of the
point of it.

As for the underside - take a look at the image below - that's typically
what Lego looks like underneath. For a 2x2 plate (thin Lego brick), look at the
4x4 plate and imagine just a quarter of it. Kind of.

I am guessing you are referring to baseplates versus plates.

Baseplates have a smooth bottom, no LEGO can been connected to baseplates from
underneath.

Plates have a hollow bottom that provide for other LEGO pieces to interlock with
the plate.

He specifically stated "flat bricks" and the sizes (2x2, 2x3, 2x4) - which aren't
baseplate sizes, so I doubt he meant that.

Maybe he means "flat bricks" as in tiles, in which case you can't stack them.

There is a clear picture in the original post and mention of a few sizes which
when added together can only mean one thing. PLATES. When have you seen a 2x3
tile or baseplate?
