Default mesh at the walls for a laminar flow

Hello people,

I'm studying a problem of natural convection in a closed cavity with Fluent (different temperatures at the walls, the flow is caused by buoyancy).
According to the Rayleigh number of my problem, the flow is laminar. Do you know any near-wall mesh guidelines for laminar flow simulation? One can only find recommendations for turbulent flow simulation in the fluent user guide.

Best regards

no matter, for laminar flow you always have a good resolution due to the low Reynolds and Rayleigh values
