What do you mean "size" of the cursor?
Either you can choose from the known types (Defined in the Cursor class) or make your own by using the Toolkit class.

As far as I know you can't get the current cursor and enlarge it. You probably could if you could convert it to both an Image and a "hot spot" Point; you could then enlarge the Image, scale the Point, then call Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createCustomCursor with those values.
