Can glottal stop occur if there is consonant before a T like in ' Best man"

    I don't think so, but you might hear the 't' being sort of omitted (I suspect there is a technical word for it) and sounding like 'bess man.'
    It's just the simplification of a consonant cluster. I don't think it is even possible to say a glottal stop after /s/ unless a vowel comes after the /t/.
