Am wondering if someone who knows about cactus can identify this plant for me. Is it a rat-tail? Or something else?
Thanks for your help.

Welcome to ATP! Welcome!

The flower isn't quite right. Can we see the rest of the plant?

Thanks for your time, Daisy. When I bought this plant, it wasn't blooming and had no name tag. So I've always called it the "I Dunno" cactus.
Here are a couple more photos.
