The child can apply as a dependent of the father assuming the father is named on the birth certificate. After 5 years in the UK the child will be eligible for ILR. They will still process the application regardless of the failed status of the mother provided you can prove that the child is wholly dependent on the father.
The fact that the mother has failed status should not have too much of an influence on the application because the father has Article 8 (Right to family and private life) under European Convention on Human Rights.

The child would not get ILR straight away, an application would have to be made for visa on his behalf as a dependent. He could then apply for ILR after 5 years..
If the father had a British passport the child then the child would obviously be born to a UK citizen and would therefore be a UK national.
The mother can marry the father but would need a certificate of approval first and then would have to make an application for a spouses visa as a dependent.
