I have created a mesh in Salome to evaluate the flow over a flat plate.

However, at the very beginning of the wall region, the mesh gets distorted as the edges of the boundary layer cells all converge to a single point.

How do I fix this?

I have attached a picture of the mesh and circled the problem area in red.

The mesh is made up of (mostly) 3D hexahedral cells and as I said is a mesh to simulate the flow over a flat plate.
