Hi @Benny529
It looks to me like a raspberry or a blackberry. It could be invasive, since branches root where they touch the ground. I see flower buds, so I would wait for it to set fruit, because if the berries are tasty you might want to keep it!

Oh wow thanks! I never would have thought it could be fruit.
I'll keep an eye on it

Those leaves remind me of Raspberry too. A few Rubus leaf photos from our database for comparison:
