There are various halachot that do not apply to a tumtum (one whose genitals are covered up and it is unclear if there are male or female) who is then “opened up” and found to be a male. One cannot be a firstborn if it is doubtful whether or not he is the firstborn. The exact situation that this halacha refers to is discussed. A father is believed to say a particular son is the firstborn but what if there is reason to believe that is not the case (evidence or circumstantial evidence shows otherwise)?
