I've found that it's not so much in the mouth as it is in the throat. You could try to put the harmonica pretty far into your mouth (if you can't press your mouth against the harmoinca yet, press the harmonica against your mouth with your hands (gently!)), then "gasping". This should get a clean note, but the sound quality won't be good until you learn to do the same thing without the "violence". If you want to do it with your lips, hold it in the correct position with one of you hands until the muscles start to form... most of all, keep trying. it's frustrating but eventually it pays off. Well, I hope this helps.
