Yes, it is common to indent paragraphs in a cover letter. This helps to visually separate the different sections of the letter and makes it easier to read. Typically, the first paragraph of the letter should be left-aligned, and each subsequent paragraph should be indented by about half an inch.

This can be done by using the "tab" key on a keyboard, or by adjusting the paragraph formatting in a word processing program.
