Is this a Paw Paw plant?

Papaya (pawpaw)    None Given

I have had a couple of paw paw plants self-seed in my veggie garden from seeds that had been put into the compost. I'm wondering if you can identify this plant. It sort of looks like the others but is a bit different.

papaya leaf deficiency

Papaya (pawpaw)    Nigeria

My papaya leaves are drying and falling off. At first I removed all the affected leaves and disposed them, but it all started again after some times. I have other papaya plants, but it's only this one that has this issue. I take good care of my plants so I wonder what the problem is with this one.
