I have a succulent but I have no clue what kind he is. If you could, I'd appreciate it if you could identify him and give tips on how to care for him. Thank you!

It looks like some kind of Echeveria. There are a LOT of diff ones.

It looks like it might be an Echeveria but a strange-looking one (to my eyes) given the height of the stem. Provide as much light as possible indoors (and natural light might not be enough in England if your window does not get good exposure). In strong light your plant will grow more compact and (I suspect) much less stem. The more light the better indoors, like right by your sunniest south-facing window.

Water well, then wait however long it takes for the soil to dry out again.. could be a week or maybe two, depending on temperature, light, and humidity. When it's time to move the plant to a bigger pot (I'd wait to see if stronger light affects the form, maybe in a few weeks) be sure that pot is wider than tall, has holes at the bottom, and is not much bigger than the width of the rosette (tip to tip across the plant). Wait a week to water after repotting.
