The opuntia all sound incredily similar in description so im habing rouble determining which Opuntia this is. Ideally id like toidentify what one specificslly it is but hether it is or is not the Indian Fig would be just as helpful to me.

Its in flower, but i havent seen it fruit, so unsure of the colour or size of the fruit - i only know its flowers are yellow. The pads are smooth with one spine in each dimple which is approx 1-2cm long at a guess. The fence is 2m tall for reference, so aporoc 2.5m at its highest

Looks very much like it. The base appears woody suggesting it is
more than a few years old. They grow extremely quickly in full sun.
Those are fruits and will get fatter and red with time.
