• Welcome to TeX SX! Are you meaning a less thick line? It is \setlength{\fboxrule}{some length}. The default in standard classes is 0.4pt. – Bernard Apr 23 '18 at 11:36
• You can go really thin with \setlength{\fboxrule}{1sp}. – Phelype Oleinik Apr 23 '18 at 11:40

The thickness of the rule is determined by the length \fboxrule. For a thinner rule, set it to a small value
\setlength{\fboxrule}{0.1pt}
