Playing today my partner opened 2NT and the following is my hand.  We do play puppet.  Should I just transfer to Hearts or bid 3 C?

What do you bid?
A:  Actually, this is why I don’t like Puppet over 2NT. There is no way to handle 5-4 in the majors.
So, just a guess.  There is no right answer with this one. Even if you transfer, do you pass or bid 3NT next?
What is 2N-3D-3H-3S – does that show this hand?
No clear answers here....Larry
