Q.Second tree growing very near another

I have an established Meyer lemon tree. I just noticed a second tree volunteered right next to it, has blossoms and tiny fruit. Should I let it grow or will it be too much competition for the best yeild?

It's always a bad idea to have two trees too close together. It affects form adversely as well as providing competition for light and water. You may be able to transplant it but if it is sucker growth from the roots of the other tree just prune it off.
Kind regards
