I got this cactus a while ago and can't find exactly what it is but I'd love to know the exact species if anyone can tell! From research the closest things I could find were cane cholla, cylindropuntia imbricata, and cylindropuntia whipplei but I can't tell which if any of those it is precisely.
(It's also got these little buds that look like they could be flowers or grow into flowers and you can see them in some of the pics)

Id go with imbricata-its the most common of the 3 , and probably the least spiniest of the genus...
I find plants like yours under "mini cholla" on google, but no species are marked.
Also, your plant might be a bit overwattered...
Id also say it looks to some fulgida photos, but not to others, maybe the ones that are not mammillata variety...
