A raindrop has to be at least .02 inches big, and on average they are .04 to .24 inches in diameter. Anything bigger usually becomes unstable and breaks apart. Anything smaller is considered just drizzle. In magazines and books, raindrops often appear tear-shaped, but really they look more like the top section of a hamburger bun.
