None. I leave the table and let him explain it.

As usual I disagree here. If you let your partner explain he might explain
what he has. Am I the only one that sees that that is wrong?

The explanation already suggested by RH is correct. Undiscussed, half play
this, half play that.
And your hand is irrelevant for the explanation.
