Can you
tsset id age
before graphing?

Can you show an example of the problem using publicly available data?

clear all
webuse grunfeld
qui xtmixed mvalue time||company:time, mle cov(un)
predict y_fitted, fitted
g c=inrange(company,1,2)
sort c
line y_fitted time, connect(L) name(wrong)
line y_fitted time, connect(L)
