In this work we study the rate of convergence to similarity profiles in a mean field model for the deposition of a submonolayer of atoms in a crystal facet, when there is a critical minimal size $ n≥ 2$ for the stability of the formed clusters. The work complements recently published related results by the same authors in which the rate of convergence was studied outside of a critical direction $ x = τ$ in the cluster size $ x$ vs. time $ \tau $ plane. In this paper we consider a different similarity variable, $ ξ : = (x-\tau )/\sqrt \tau $, corresponding to an inner expansion of that critical direction, and prove the convergence of solutions to a similarity profile $ Φ_{2,n}(ξ)$ when $ x, \tau \to +∞$ with $ ξ$ fixed, as well as the rate at which the limit is approached.
