Sweetie, the writing is on the all for all to see, imo.
He likes the "security" of the relationship you have now, but doesn't want the "commitment," You are being used, even if neither of you realize it. You're like the old, comfortable shoe that he can't get rid of. You make his life comfortable. Easy.
I'm sorry to be so blunt. And, yes, I feel confident writing this because your story has been told a thousand times before.
By the way, you are not "too" young. Personally, I think it is outrageous that adults in their mid to late twenties are still considered "too" immature, these days, and it says a lot about our society. Yet, young women of your generation are blessed. You don't have to latch on to a man to support "you." You are free to pursue your own goals and marry at twenty, thirty, forty, or never. But "too young" to marry? No. Just different goals. That young folks have many more options today is wonderful. But blaming a lack of commitment on "immaturity" is pitiful. He can grow up in a nano second if he wanted to. He just doesn't want to commit to you. There's nothing wrong with that except for the fact that he's been using you.
Only "you" can decide if you can live with this, but, personally, I would give him the ring back in a heartbeat and make him move out. Physically move out. And my strong guess is that he will be declaring his everlasting love for you, begging you to take the ring back, and marry as soon as possible, because right now, being supported by you might be preferable to living in his parent's basement.
