!!!!! Please help me identify my bonsai

I have bought a bonsai yesterday. The owner didn't know what bonsai it is. I want to know which bonsai it is and is it healthy or not.
I will be grateful if anybody responds.
Here are some pictures of my bonsai.

Adenium obesum. Not technically a bonsai, but rather a pachycaul.

No. This is a Ficus microcarpa, looks like a Green Isle. Those big roots are there to stay and they won't go away no matter what you do.

Thank you very much for replying.
From what I know about adenium they have flowers but the owner told me that this bonsai will not have flowers.
Is it possible that the owner was wrong?
By the way Can I expect this plant to grow as a bonsai?

Dear The ficus guy thank you very much for answering.
I was very worry about it.
I feel very good now that I know what is my bonsai type.
