Hello guys, once again I'm stumped with another plant that I've been given. I think it's a type of palm but i can't find it online anywhere. Does anyone know what it is? Thank you!

Your palm is only showing juvenile leaves. It is likely that your palm are Areca (Dypsis lutescens) as it is the most common seed grown.

Definitely a juvenile Palm but I don't know which one. All photos in our database for Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens) appear to be mature specimens.

It does look like a handful of Dypsis lutescens seedlings.

Nurseries toss a handful of seeds in a pot, so when they grow it looks like they are a clump. Although the palm clumps well on it's own eventually.

If you carefully separate them and put them in pots, you'll have enough to make a hedge.
