You sure they're not just glued on?

No I'm kidding, I'm sorry I don't know what kind of cactus that is but I see them at home depot when I'm browsing threw their sad plant section. They like to hot glue fake flowers onto them, blue and yellow and pink. It cant be good for the plants.
USDA zone 5b, Sunset zone 35

I know your kidding about the flowers being glued on. but these are real, I have 2 more buds on it now so I think there real, I don't buy cactus from lowe's or home depot any more because of this, I find it a cheap way to sell plants.

Cacti ID

This definitely is a Mammillaria, not sure of the species. Flowers are always small on these, though the colour could be pink, purple, yellow, white
