Oh dear. Lots of pretend flowers that will possibly damage the plants if you remove them. The first plants is Austrocylindropuntia subulata and the second one in the same picture appears to be a monstrose plant, possible an opuntia. The plant on the left in the second photo looks like Mammillaria elongata and the one on the right is another monstrose plant. I can't identify the two plants in the third photo. Fourth photo, from the left - Cleistocactus strausii, Notocactus (Parodia) leninghausii or warasii (I'm not sure which) The one on the right could be Notocactus (Parodia) uebelmannia. Last picture; the one at the back looks like a Lobivia, on the left a Ferocactus and on the right a Mammillaria. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Thank you, should I remove the flowers then , it may seem silly but I didn't realise they were false flowers . How silly am I, a couple have fallen off already quite easy.

The 'flowers' are usually dried and coloured Helichrysum flowers, stuck on in Holland or Belgium with a hot glue gun. they should come off fairly easily but might leave some heat damage behind. For anyone new to the hobby the flowers are quite convincing. When they first started sticking on the dried flowers they used to match up the correct flower colours and position but now they're stuck on all over the place. They're probably best avoided in the future.

I have taken them all off they don't seem to have made any damage on the plants thankfully, so with any look they will be fine. You learn something new everyday I want be buying anymore cacti with false flowers in the future. My first learning curve.

Yes, you're quite right, Keith. Thanks for the correction.
