How much into it are you? Because he gets bigger as the books progress

get used to The Fool. He/She/It is in every Hobb book. (well perhaps not in the new Dragons Keeper)

Actually, your pretty close on the money. Robin Hobb only feeds you tidbits about the fool, and leaves you guessing for more. The fool is an enigma, exactly what he is meant to be.

In that case my advice is DON'T READ ANY OF THOSE THREADS :)
Finish the books first otherwise you will find some big spoilers and so much more happens! You have another 8 books to go - 2 more in the Farseer series and then itsoff to the Liveships trillogy and then into the last 3 books and back to the Farseer lands. Note that whilst the liveships is a different storyline it overlaps a lot with the farseer stories (both set in the same world just in different lands) and for the full story I really do recomend reading them
