PHP Function Help

I've written this piece of code, which outputs the profile_display_fields for the $USER:

$appearance = profile_display_fields($USER->id);
        if (empty($appearance)) {
            //Do nothing
        } else {
            foreach ($appearance as $c) {
            $custom .= '<a href=\''.$CFG->wwwroot.'/course/view.php?id='.$c->id.'\'>'.$c->fullname.'</a>';

Here is the function I'm using:

function profile_display_fields($userid) {
    global $CFG, $USER;

    if ($categories = get_records_select('user_info_category', '', 'sortorder ASC')) {
        foreach ($categories as $category) {
            if ($fields = get_records_select('user_info_field', "categoryid=$category->id", 'sortorder ASC')) {
                foreach ($fields as $field) {
                    $newfield = 'profile_field_'.$field->datatype;
                    $formfield = new $newfield($field->id, $userid);
                    if ($formfield->is_visible() and !$formfield->is_empty()) {
                        print_row(s($formfield->field->name.':'), $formfield->display_data());

What I'm looking to do is try some var_dumps to output the correct data.

However can anyone help me identify the variables?

In your function you are not returning any value but above that in your code, you have assigned a variable to this function:

$appearance = profile_display_fields($USER-
