It looks like a mammillaria species, and they often produce a neat ring of flower buds around the growing point. See https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo/cactus-mammillaria-sempervivi-flowers-close.html for example. But the ones in your picture don't look very "real" to me.
If you don't see any change in them in a couple of weeks, they are most likely false. I don't know why people stick false flowers and buds onto cacti, but they do!
If you touch one of them (carefully, to avoid the cactus spines) it should be fairly obvious if it's part of the plant, or a bit of plastic. I said touch one of them, because if they are real you want the rest of them to develop and flower without being damaged by you prodding them!
Be careful if you try to remove them. They may be held on by pins stuck into the cactus, which are easy to pull out but will leave scars, and will increase the risk of diseases getting into the plant until the plant heals itself. But if they are glued on, removing them can seriously damage the plant, and you might be better off just leaving them where they are.
One way to try to remove glued-on "flowers" is to heat a kitchen knife in boiling water, and hope the heated knife will soften the glue as you try to cut through it. But try that at your own risk, of course.
