Please check the following two images and compare side by side. I've added a red mark for your convenience. The drop shadow or box shadow doesn't look neat and clean.



Changing the following css I've gotten better result.

.postbox .hndle, .stuffbox .hndle {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #eee;
    user-select: none;
// Changing the above styles to this
.postbox:not(.closed) .hndle, .stuffbox:not(.closed) .hndle {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #eee;
    user-select: none;

Thank you @obiplabon for your ticket and welcome to Trac. Sorry for the long delay.

With the new Block editor, this issue is no longer happening. However, even on recent versions of WordPress, the report is confirmed with the Classic Editor plugin installed.

I'll mark this ticket as requiring design feedback so the Design team can share their thoughts on the matter.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
