Since your child is acknowledged by the father, you cannot change his surname to yours on the ground that you and the father are no longer in good terms. Please know that there are only certain grounds which may be used to change the surname of an individual and the break-up of the parents is not one of them.
If you are really decided to let your child use your surname, you may look into the possibility of adopting your own child. With adoption, his rights would be similar to that of a legitimate child, use your surname, etc. However, you will need to get the written consent of the father. Thus, you may want to reach out to him and see what he thinks about the idea.
