The bolt cutter is shaped like a rough white object that it cannot pick up, so if you can't pick them up, we recommend switching to another world where you can.
The mission involving the bolt cutter doesn't exactly ask you to look for one, Richard's mission asks you to enter the living room, and in order to access you will need bolt cutters.
When you find a cutter, you will have to go to the door on the right and interact with the mirror to change to another universe or dimension. Get out again using the door, and you will finally be able to get hold of the bolt cutter, so go back and complete Richar's mission to get hold of what the living room is hiding.
That's everything you need to know about how to get bolt cutters in The Medium, we hope that now that you have it clear, you can get the cutter quickly to complete the mission and whatever you need it for.
