Yes, George tells the ranch boss that Lennie is his cousin and they travel around together. George says Lennie is so "dumb" because he got kicked in the head by a horse.
No, he isn't his cousin. He is just a friend who used to use Lennie due to his sheer strength. The cousin story was just an excuse to the 'boss'
