Ridge vent problems

I had 25' of ridge vent installed several years ago at the peak of a section of flat roof (back) to front angled roof (front). It seems when it rains really hard, I get water coming down between the walls in one section. Now I have a mold problem. What would you suggest? I need to get up on the roof to make sure branches and leaves are not preventing drainage away from the ridge. Is ridge roofing along a flat roof section, a good idea?

No, you should never have ridge vent installed where there is no slope.

Pictures sure would be nice so we can see what your seeing.
Low slope roof, ridge vent, just makes no since.
