That thing

What's the thing where you half-smile at someone you work with, but never speak to, but it isn't quite a smile because you don't actually know their name. What's that called?

a smirk?
an acknowledgment nod?
does it even have a name?

I have a student who always asks how I'm doing. I do know his name, but I never know how to respond. I usually just say, okay.
