Not sure, could be a young elongata, those clumps of bristle/spines might be the start of offshoots.
It needs a gritty compost, watering every 2 weeks roughly until late Sept., then keep dry, but if indoors give small amount of water each month to stop any shrivelling in house heating. Keep frost free. Then water again normally from early Spring.
