Y+ is the nondimensional distance of a point from the wall (check FLUENT manual for definition).

You should consider Y+ value to generate a grid with a proper density near the wall.

For example, if you use turbulence models with wall-functions, you should have Y+ between 30 and 60, while if you want to use the enhanced wall function, you should have Y+ close to 1.

You can use the Y+ adaption tool from the Adapt menu to check Y+ value and to adapt your grid according to it.
