    It would help the folks who would answer this if you would reply with photos, both of the whole plant and close-ups of the leaves. See Attach photos and files.

    It's a Euphorbia (a succulent, not a cactus). Looks reasonably healthy, but could probably do with better light closer to the window, it looks a bit etiolated ('trying to reach for the sun').

    Note: if you ever want to prune it at all, avoid any skin contact with the white sap, as this is toxic and can cause skin burns in some people.
