What are the problems of a big hole in the teat

If the hole is too big, the milk will spurt out rapidly. This will result in the baby taking in too much milk and choking. Boiling the teat may reduce the size of the opening but if it does not you will have to discard the teat. 

What are the problems of a small hole in the teat

If the hole is too small, the milk will not come out easily and it will take a long time for the droplet to form at the hole in the teat. In this case, the baby will swallow air in her effort to suck the milk which can cause colic and vomiting after feeds. A small hole in the teat can be enlarged using a red-hot needle. 

How do I ensure that the hole in the teat is of the correct size

The hole is the right size, if the milk falls steadily drop by drop when you turn the bottle upside down. Turn the bottle upside down to check that the hole in the teat is the correct size.
