Is it possible to put a normal mattress on a sofa bed?

First you have a height limitation. Many sleepers cannot take mattresses that are thicker than 5 inches.
The more serious problem is that the mattress needs to bend in half (bifold) or three parts (trifold.)

Regular mattresses are not designed to fold, unfold and be refolded like that.
