I think there are different approaches to this.

While the 2. makes it clearer that the c2. is one note, not three, it would
make it ambiguous when the d comes in--unless you do it with parallel
voices and add a r4 rest.  But then you have to deal with tweaking stem and
rest directions and locations, and this approach doesn't generally work
well with more than 2 voices.

So, I'd just tie them together.

Although, for this particular set of notes you'd need to do a lot of
tweaking to get the layout clear.  The default output for this cluster is
pretty lame, with the ties between the c's not being on the same line, and
the tie between the d's looking like it is a slur from d to e.

The default output looks better for a normal chord.

\score {
    \header { piece = "Parallel voices" }
    {
        \time 3/4
        << { c'2. } \\ { r4 d'2 } \\ { r2 e'4 } >>
        << { c'2. } \\ { r4 d'2 } \\ { r2 g'4 } >>
    }
}

\score {
    \header { piece = "Ties" }
    {
        \time 3/4
        c'4 ~ <c' d'>4 ~ <c' d' e'>4
        c'4 ~ <c' e'>4 ~ <c' e' g'>4
    }
}
