The first priotiy, ALWAYS, has to be to seek what is best for the baby. Get a good legal opinion, but it may be possible to require the supposed father to have DNA testing when the baby is born, to prove whether or not he is the father. If he is, then a court can be asked to order him to pay maintenance for the child's benefit until the child is an adult, and I believe this should be done, so that young men realise that sex includes taking responsibility for the results of fun, and they can't just make babies and then wander off for more fun.
This does not mean that the couple have to remain together. But it is essential that the boy ( he's not behaving like a man ) continue to pay for the benefit of the child. If he insists he is not the father, DNA testing can prove whether or not this is so. If f he proves not to be the father, presumably the mother would know if there were any other candidates.
