I joined as SDE I in a new team but I have worked in the domain for 4 years now. I have a team mate - an SDE II who constantly takes credit for ideas that I brought up during our private discussions. He once over heard my conversation with another engineer about a solution and brought up the exact same solution like he thought of it. He says things only in my manager's presence during scrum. This is the only contribution he makes but talks a lot. Honestly, I think he is just all talk and my manager thinks I should go to him for advice as I am newer to the team. How do I tell my manager or work with such a person but still earn trust? I am tired of saying I thought about this or we talked about that. This is discouraging me from sharing my thoughts and I think this is toxic to my work life and is also affecting my path to a promotion.
