It is a Ferocactus. Hard to immediately pin down which species when they are that young.

These will want a lot of sun, but acclimatize it slowly. It is so nice and shiny that it might have enjoyed shade/green house conditions...

Probably, if you can supplement with some bright sunlight when possible that will help. If it starts getting a lot taller than wide, it probably means it is not getting enough light. In that case the spines will also get thinner.
