The presence of correlations between particles significantly separated in pseudorapidity in proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions revealed surprises in the early LHC data. Are the physical processes responsible for the observed long-range pseudorapidity correlations and their azimuthal structure the same in small collision systems as in heavy ion collisions? Whereas in the case of heavy ion collisions ``flow'' is interpreted as generated by initial geometric inhomogeneities, calculations indicate that initial-state momentum correlations are present and could contribute to the observed azimuthal anisotropy in small systems. Probes involving heavy quarks provide us with a unique opportunity to disentangle different quantum chromodynamics effects at the boundary between low- and high-$p_{\mathrm{T}}$ interactions, and hence shed light on the origin of flow in small collision systems. A selection of the latest measurements is presented for the flow and production of heavy flavor hadrons and their decay products.
