I suppose his function is to let the reader know there is empathy even in a boy who has it worse than Oliver. Little Dick is Oliver’s friend and fellow victim at Mrs. Mann's abusive "orphanage". He is the first person ever to bless Oliver which certainly says something about the rich who consider Oliver vermin.
