Well, no.

That density is a constant, namely . di normalden(0) .39894228 Whatever mean a normal has just shifts the distribution left or right, so makes no difference to what the peak density is; hence without loss of generality we can focus on mean 0. Whatever SD a normal has, 0/SD is still 0. Correct me if I'm wrong....

Is it possible to calculate the maximum density at the mean point? And more interesting: is it possible to define "xline" until a given point at the y axis (the maximum density as you can imagine) because I want to add the mean line with going higher than the maximum density?
