This page is about the conversational phrase come again?
You can say this if you don't understand a word or phrase that someone's used.
- "My wife's a paediatrician."
"A doctor for kids. It's a special field of medicine."
- "Don't rock the boat, Dmitry."
"Don't make trouble, or don't upset them."
"Come again?" is quite informal, and can even sound rude to some people, so in a formal situation it's better to say "Excuse me?" or "Pardon?", even though the meaning is less clear.
