Spiral Question

Playing precision and spiral and 14-16 NT openers, in first seat red against red, I picked up the following hand:

A92 A543 K10643 6

With the opponents passing through-out, our auction went like this:

1D-1S

2S-2NT spiral

Not being sure if my partner was trying to decide between 3NT and 4S, between 3S and 4S or between 3NT and bidding beyond, I responded 3C—a minimum with 3 pieces. My partner bid 3S, in his mind to place the contract. I decided with the spade fit now known to re-evaluate my hand and bid on to 4S which was down 1.

My question is three-fold:

1—Was the 3C bid appropriate at the time

2—Is it possible to have a hand that initially bid as a minimum which is re-evaluated after the fit is known and therefore warrants a raise to 4 and

3—If it is possible to have such a hand, is this such a hand.

Please provide your input via the poll and comments would also be most welcome

The 3 club bid was appropriate and it is not possible to have a hand that gets re-evaluated after partner next places the contract
The 3 club bid was appropriate and you should have re-evaluated and bid 4S with this hand
The 3 club bid was appropriate. There are hands that you should re-evaluate however this is not one of them
You should have bid 3D. There are no hands that should bid 3C and then re-evaluate once a fit is known
You should have bid 3D. There are hands that should bid 3C first (this is not one of them since you should have bid 3D) and then re-evaluate and raise to 4S
