Landscaping - having a (basalt) stone wall built. Loose rocks on top normal?

First time hiring a landscape contractor to do a bunch of yard renovations. One of the items is to build a basalt stone wall.
Some of the stones on the top of the wall are very small (weigh only a few lbs) and the wall is constructed without any mortar.
It is me or is this not
how a wall should be built?
It feels like after a hard rain/wind or a squirrel running along it, the whole top layer may be gone.
