Default Need Help to ID Palm Tree

This one came up wild. I thought it was a bush until I started trimming. There is a large trunk in the center about 2-3 feet diameter about 4-feet up from the ground, and smaller "trunks" all around it.

Close up of main trunk

Anyone know what it might be?

The main trunk is about 1-ft from a concrete block wall, and the smaller trunk on that side is almost touching it. No choice on the small trunk - it has to be cut back. But I'm wondering if the large is also too close to the wall and roots could damage it?

Thanks in advance!
