Hi John, Welcome!

That is a neat looking succulent; reminds me of a Stapeliad of some sort. We have a few listed in our database with photos and growing information: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

I'm sure one of our knowledgeable members will be along soon and recognize your lovely plant to be able to give a more exact ID.

After googling and looking at images, I wonder if it might be Euphorbia (Euphorbia globosa)

It is a Euphorbia and it needs more light. See how the stems have recently become narrow at the ends, compared to how fat they were before? That's because the plant is reaching for more light. Ideally hours of sun through a window, your sunniest indoor location would be ideal.

I agree with everything Baja said.

Hello guys and thank you for all your input! It was sitting on my balcony for a few days on the open sun and became this slightly ill looking. Wasn't sure whats wrong I relocated it on to my desk and it gotten worse.. Any way, I'll put it back in the balcony, will see how it responds.

Too much direct overhead sun can be dangerous to a plant which has gotten used to a protected situation (like your Euphorbia, judging by the stems)... this time of year especially. The difference between indoor and outdoor sun is mostly due to the way regular window glass blocks most of the UV in the sunlight. Outdoor sun can shock or stall growth when plants aren't ready for it, so be careful how much your plant gets on the balcony.

I also have the same plant, I was wondering if it is E. globosa or E. psuedoglobosa? Not really sure what the difference between the two are!

I am unable to help there. There is a good chance the plant could be a hybrid. In any case, outside my range of experience.
