1-When I first met him in London, he was very thin.
Can't this sentence mean two things:
a-The first time I met him was in London. Then he was very thin.
b-The first time I met him in London, he was very thin. (I had met him before, but not in London.)
Maybe for meaning "a" one should put a comma before "in London"?

It can, and the comma would make things a bit clearer, but as it's one of your sentences built for ambiguity....
