Question on the עשרת בני המן page in the Megillah

I recently got some קלף for a second מגילת אסתר, and I see that the lines were done for the עשרת בני המן daf a bit different than normal.

Instead of the page dividing evenly into 11 lines, there are 10 lines that are equal, but the 11th line is smaller than the rest of the lines.

I assume that it is the correct layout, but my question is witch line should the כתב be based on?

I know for sure it cannot be the larger lines because then the כתב for the 11th line would jump out of the 11th line.

I will try to get a picture of the lines בעזרת ה soon.
