upon looking at this closer the frame is different as this has a support down near the crank where as mine has none.

They're a Raleigh 20 knock-off by the looks of it, I've seen a couple by different manufacturers

i have a raleigh twenty foldable here and it doesnt really look like it at all. the twenty was only in 20" i believe, this is a 24" but alot of these bikes did look alike back in the day so anything is possible
