Since the walls of the closet are not load-bearing and you will be securing the closet walls to the floor and ceiling, what is the purpose of connecting it to the wall structurally? How about a 2x4 and some construction adhesive to seal it up a bit?

Normally i think that would work but there are two problems. First the ceiling is not level there is a bump in the middle of where the top of the frame goes so i have been using shins to level it out. My room also has 10 feet ceiling so i have to frame out the top of the closet. It is really hard to explain i dont know if you understand this.

1/4 x 3" Tapcon screws with hex heads installed through a vertical 2x4 ought to do it. You'll need a hammer drill and correct sized drill bit for the screws. A couple screws and the construction adhesive mentioned is a good idea.
