# How do i fix a vertex seam?

I have no experience with modelling and i could use some help, i am editing a model from the Source engine, and there happens to be a seam where the arm is, this seam is having a strange lighting effect when used in-game, i'm trying to fix it in Blender with the little tutorials i have (in this case i'm using the Grid Fill tool), but no matter what i do, it doesn't match with the mesh lighting around it, you can notice in the picture that this certain vertex looks out of place:

Is there a way i can fix it so that the lighting of this vertex matches with what's around it? You probably know what i mean.

• could you also add a picture where you are in edit mode? – Faceb Faceb Dec 24 '16 at 17:29

• Have you recalculated the normals (press Ctrl+N in Edit Mode)? Removing doubles may help as well (W-->Remove Doubles). – Paul Gonet Dec 25 '16 at 2:37
• I think it look slike the couple of faces have shading set to flat while the rest is smooth. Select the faces in edit mode and try W->Shade Smooth – sambler Dec 25 '16 at 3:35
• None of those methods work, this one vertex is stuck for good, there has to be some other way. – sodaddict Dec 25 '16 at 14:17
