Can some one tell me what kind of cactus this is?

It's isn't cactus, it's an Euphorbia. Don't remember the species name right now, but I'm sure someone knows it. This is a very common houseplant here.

One thing that I do not understand is that this plant has thorns and flesh like a cactus.Could it still be a Euphorbia?

Here is a link that might be the same one you have.

If those are little leaves I see, then it is most likely an African Milk Tree.

I am here now went away for Christmas Holiday. This plant does not have leaves but the branches look like baby plants that are growing.

Welcome home. I found several pictures claiming to be Cereus hexagonus, of which one looks just like your plant. If it is a Nightblooming Cereus, then it should get beautiful, large, white flowers which last only one night. Good luck.

You are right it looks like it. Thank you so much. Happy New Year :)
