Hey mate, there probably is a Trichocereus pachanoi somewhere under all that scale. You should definitely get it treated though. It´s really covered with a Pest called scale. You can usually treat it pretty easily, but it takes a few treatments with something like Neem or Alcohol (no treatment in the sun!). So yeah, I´d suggest you post it again after it´s clean. It´s probably T. pachanoi, but it could also be a short spine Bridgesii.

an old used toothbrush is a lot more 'plant friendly' than chemicals

 

myself, i'd brush the scale off & then blast it with water
