Looks like it's a Jade. Jade crassula. Try putting it in a smaller pot and giving it more light. (Jade's love sunshine) If it's in a shaded spot currently make sure to slowly adjust the plant to higher light levels.

Also, the jades i have enjoy a good soaking. I soak them about once every 2 weeks and they are in clay pots. Doing well and growing crazy!

Yours is in the wrong kind of mix, too peaty, will not drain well. Pls. go tho the Cactus & Succulent forum & read up on Jade care & proper soil mixes for Jades. Your plant will thank you for it later.
