From what I can see, it looks like from mammillaria species.. I guess it's mammillaria spinosissima, but maybe I'm wrong. But you can try Google about this.
@taylorsjungle it is a mammollaria, but it looks like (according to Google lens) a zeilmanniana to me.
@taylorsjungle here is what Google lens said.
I second some Mammillaria species! Cacti can be near impossible to ID to the species level until they flower. Most Mammillaria species have the same care needs so you should be in good shape regardless of which you choose!
@Kiersten thank you!!
