Dear vardaan

let distance between line of action of mg and N is x

so verticle force balance 

N=mg

clearly mg/3 is less than the maximum static friction force .

so only mg/3 static friction force will act .

now torque balance from the center of the cube

mg/3 *a/2  + mg/3 *a/2  = N*x

mga/3 =N*x

mga/3 = mgx

 x =a/3
