Cactus pup ID please

I would like an ID for the one on the left. I know the one on the right is an opuntia microdasys albata. TIA

Laura, hows about a closer pic of your lefty plant? Come on girl, a round plant with spines can have a lot of names. Fuzzy center? Curved vs. straight spines? All that stuff. I can say that I have some Acanthocalycium klimpelianums and A. violaceums that look like that. But I am really bad at IDs.

You're right! Sorry! I should know better. It has curved, flexible, smooth spines. The new growth nodes are fuzzy and yellow, but appear to turn white as they grow out.

Not Acantho, and probably not Echinopsis either, because few have that fuzzy middle. Not Ferocactus or Matucana either.
