    I was so shocked, I couldn't close my mouth.

    Hello.

    I was so shocked, I couldn't close my mouth.

    Is this sentence grammatically correct? Don't you delete the comma, or don't you use "that" instead?

    Yes it's correct, the comma isn't necessary but it's not wrong. 'That' is optional.
