mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN,   x, y, 0, 0); // Left Key Down
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_UP,   x, y, 0, 0); // Left Key UP

Is this what you mean? This should click the mouse wherever it is, but you have to set the MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE flag to make sure it clicks the current mouse position, instead of the x and y relative to it.
POINT point;
GetCursorPos(&point);
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN | MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE,  point.x, point.y, 0, 0);
mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_UP | MOUSEEVENTF_ABSOLUTE, point.x, point.y, 0, 0);
