Having hesitation

Hey fellas. I have a 2009 Volvo c30. 2.5L turbo. So while normal driving I happen to notice that my car almost hesitates when it hits 3000rpms. It’s not a missfire and I didn’t find anything out of the ordinary that was wrong. I can’t gingle my brain around this one and every site is see is telling me all these other things. The car runs and drives fine. Just when the rpm gauge hit about 3 it hesitates. I push the peddal down more it goes just fine.

Offhand it sounds like the throttle position sensor. There could also be an issue with the turbo.

What kind of issue with the turbo ? And it has no codes

Vehicles with turbos sometimes have problems with hesitation. Or it could be just not working like it should.

Do you have any tips on where I should start? Aa far as maintenance on the turbo. Not that it’s really a problem but my OCD kicks in when my car isn’t right to my liking
