That's the correct solution: VOF is a fluid phase so it'll splat/splash depending on the speed of impact etc. Are you trying to see it bounce? If you want to see the splash you'll need a much finer mesh and keep running the model as the splash is more likely to occur as the "back" of the droplet hits the plate.

When I continued to run, the water gradually spread on the flat plate without any splash or bounce. Why? My goal is to observe the rebound phenomenon,but how should I set the relevant parameters?

Do you mean splash or bounce? The droplet will only splash if there is enough energy (momentum) when it hits the base to overcome the surface tension forces.
