It looks like my Opuntia subulata cristata, Eve's needle Crested

I have seen it listed also as Austrocylindropuntia subulata but this is a tree-form cactus

Very interesting looking plant, lots of photos for comparison in our database: Crested Eve's Needle (Austrocylindropuntia subulata 'Cristata')
