I suspect the problem is elsewhere because I can go to https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_input and put in exactly /* and the */ and it comes back as perfectly valid. That is a correct CSS comment format. Attach the entire file and I'll try to find your problem if you'd like.

One of those tools validates markup and one validates CSS … so they are probably both right as far as their areas of interest are concerned. 
It is difficult to tell what you mean though, and you didn’t provide a test case to demonstrate the issue you are having.
