But if you mulch the grass then you can get a lot of build up.
That depends a lot on what type of grass you have.
I have tall fescue, never bag, mulch always, and have no thatch issues (power raking fescue is a very bad idea btw).

I normally do 3" so maybe this week for my first mow I'll go down to 2.25 or 2.5 to help get that LOW MOW going. And might help get the grow going as stated above.
