XSLT never generates new lines on its own (unless you have set
indent="yes" on xsl:output)

Any newlines in the output come from the source or from the stylesheet.

You showed a bit of source without any newlines but you didn't show your

probably you have
<xsl:template match="jhh">
  Some text
  <xsl:value-of ....

If so the first node of that template is a text node with

  Some text

as its value (ie it starts with a newline and two spaces.

If so, don't do that, do this

<xsl:template match="jhh">
  <xsl:text>Some text</xsl:text>
  <xsl:value-of ....

Now the first node is a white space text node with just a newline and
two spaces, so it will be stripped when the stylesheet is processed and
not form part of the output.
