I am pretty sure it is not a Ferocactus at that size they look really different in terms of body and spines.
I am thinking it is a Parodia or what used to be known as a Notocactus.

I don't think its a Ferocactus but without flowers, it may be hard to say at this small a size.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
