Hi,
I choose custom category with

d/m/yyyy

to the cell. And the cell is showing

6/1/2016

but if I've double-clicked it, it then becomes 1/6/2016. I think this is a confusion there. How to avoid it?

The U.S. uses a weird "mm-dd-yyyy" date format which makes it confusing to the rest of the world. To counter this, I always use the date format "dd-mmm-yyyy" so today's date will show as 05-Aug-2016 and not 5/8/2016 which could mean 5th of August, or 8th of May depending on your localisation settings.
