That's great that you are there for him and want to help. Unfortunately, there's not a ton that can be done, other than listen when he feels like talking and try to understand what he's going through. Some people with DP don't have the understanding of friends or family, so that's a start. Stay strong yourself though; he needs your strength. Reassure him that everything is normal. He probably feels some comfort just from your familiarty and presence, so you're probably doing what you can already:)
