parryi, yes. It does not look like truncata to me. Harder to tell them apart when they are small. When more mature the difference becomes apparent. The color will be greatly affected by climate and sun exposure so discount for that.

Probably a young A. parryi v. huachucensis. Part of the problem IDing is your climate. I'm used to seeing these plants here; they look different when they aren't getting roasted by 100F temps every day.
