The prolate-oblate shape phase transition in the the interacting boson model is revisited by adopting the transitional Hamiltonian with a linear dependence on the control parameter. The analysis of the shape phase transition in both the large-N limit and finite N case shows that the O(6) symmetry is robust as the critical point symmetry of the prolate-oblate shape phase transition.
